Candidate "subsumption" zone on Europa
Candidate subduction zones (light colored regions identified by arrows) in the northern trailing hemisphere of Europa. The study region shows evidence of a subducting plate with discrete boundaries, one of which shows evidence of the removal of 92 km of the surface along a NE-SW-oriented band at its southern margin.
