Re: [Geology2] Radar map of the Venusian surface

The thick atmosphere does not go all the way to the ground, though i suspect there are foggy conditions depending on you local weather. The cloud layer on top is the bit that is thick and the makeup of those clouds causes the greenhouse effect.

You are not likely seeing true colors but rather a "colorized" version done so in order that you may distinguish landform anomalies on the planet's surface. I assume that water on Venus is unlikely but cannot rule it out entirely either.

For some reason I thought Venus had a very heavy gas atmosphere, hard to see the surface.. but there are blue and green areas like water and land. hmm. Allison
