Many planets and moons of our solar system show evidence of volcanic eruptions. The early missions to the Moon, Mars, Venus and Mercury were truly missions of discovery, with great debates in the scientific community on the roles of impacts and volcanic eruptions in shaping their surfaces.
This lecture will discuss how these alien volcanic features are mapped and interpreted with knowledge and techniques developed from studies of volcanoes on Earth.
