Abstract

MERC provides the capability to construct cross sections or topographic maps for parts of the surface of the planet Mercury. The photometric theory that permits digital image brightness measurements from the Mariner 10 spacecraft to be converted into changes in surface topography elevations is described. Techniques for leveling or readjusting the slope of specific portions of a cross profile by multiple surface albedo estimates are discussed. We present several examples of crater cross sections and a topographic map.
