Lauren MacLellan paper published in Earth-Science Reviews

Third year student Lauren MacLellan (under the supervision of Dr. Richard Ernst, Scientist in Residence) is the lead author on an 29 page paper just published in Earth-Science Reviews “Volcanic history of the Derceto large igneous province, Astkhik Planum, Venus”

She mapped an area of Venus covering  1,920,000 km2 at a scale of 1:500,000 (which was 10X more detailed than previous mapping). Through this detailed mapping she developed the geological history of a major volcanic centre which included basaltic lava flows up to 1000 km long.
