Venus, Earth's Structural Sister: Investigations Using Radar Imagery

Let's face it: It's pretty difficult to get to Venus to do hands-on fieldwork. This helpful teaching resource from Vicki Hansen at the University of Minnesota-Duluth overcomes some of those difficulties by allowing students the opportunity to do just that, in a manner of speaking. Using data from NASA, students will learn how to construct of geologic map of a region of Venus' surface. The concepts covered by this activity include basic mapping principles, remote data set interpretation, and structure morphology. The activity is intended for students in a variety of educational settings, including high school geology classes and introductory college level geology courses. Visitors to this site will find important supporting online resources (such as geologic maps of Venus) and a complete description on how to conduct this activity.
