Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Discovery Rupes is an escarpment on Mercury approximately 650 kilometers long and 2 kilometers high, located at latitude 56.3 S and longitude 38.3 W. It was formed by a thrust fault, thought to have occurred due to the shrinkage of the planet's core as it cooled over time. The scarp cuts through Rameau crater. An escarpment is a steep slope or long cliff that results from erosion or faulting and separates two relatively level areas of differing elevations. Usually escarpment is used interchangeably with scarp.show more
