Photo-geological mapping of volcanic activity on terrestrial planets

For example Moon is considered to have preserved surfaces from the earliest period of planetary formation, but 17% of the surface experienced episodes of extensive volcanism. Work here can be related to evaluate the distribution and extent of such activity for Mercury. 

Some mineralogical information is available as well. Temporal constraints can be gathered based on crater count statistics.

We offer a project which will be based on building GIS data bases and satellite image interpretation.
