Abstract

Geological mapping of Mercury is essential to build an understanding of the history of the planet and to set the context for observations by BepiColombo [1]. Geological mapping of the Debussy quadrangle (H-14) is now underway as part of a program to map the entire planet at a scale of 1:3M using MESSENGER data [2]. The quadrangle is located in the southern hemisphere of Mercury at 0o – 90o E and 22.5o – 65o S. This will be the first high resolution map of the quadrangle as it was not previously imaged by Mariner 10.
