Abstract

Scientists of the U.S. Geological Survey, Department of the Interior, who are members of the Voyager Imaging Science Team studying exotic photographs obtained by Voyager 1 of the moons of Jupiter, continue to find new geologic ‘wonders’ far beyond anyone's expectations.

Laurence Soderblom, of the USGS Branch of Astrogeologic Studies, Flagstaff, Arizona, deputy team leader of the Imaging Science Team and head of the geologic research group, said, ‘We are just beginning to catch our breath after having made preliminary interpretations of the dazzling collection of photographs.’
