Abstract

Drawing on the observed geology, photometry and geophysical data, examines various processes and properties that may have contributed to Miranda's evolution. Global tectonics and surface flow features constrain the possible heating mechanisms and materials. Statistics of impact craters and comparisons with other satellites suggest that the impactor-source population evolved through time and that ejecta mantling has resurfaced significant portions of the surface. -from Authors
