We discuss the geodetic aspects and some physical features of the interior of Venus. The pressure, density, and temperature distributions are estimated. The gravity anomalies caused by convection currents, topography, and other effects are then estimated. We conclude that the tesseral harmonics of the field could be twice those found on the earth.
