Agenor Linea, Europa
Filed under pretty pictures, Jupiter's moons, Europa, Galileo
Stretching 1400 kilometers across Europa, Agenor Linea is a mysterious feature composed of numerous parallel ridges. In this view, made from Galileo data, we see a part of Agenor that is 20 kilometers wide, with a few hundred meters of relief from ridge top to trough bottom (there is some vertical exaggeration). Adjacent to Agenor are regions of chaos. Mapping suggests that some strike-slip motion has occurred across the feature
