In these diagrams, a radar image (left) of the area studied by Basilevsky and his team has been shaded to show the different geologic regions that were analysed (centre).

The rugged highland terrain called Chimon-mana Tessera is labelled "1", with the surrounding volcanic plains marked as "2n" and "2s". To the north, the nearby Tuulikki volcano and its summit are labelled "3" and "4" respectively.

The picture to the right shows the emissivity of 1-micron radiation in these regions. It reveals a decrease in emissivity at Chimon-mana Tessera and the summit of the volcano, compared to the surrounding regions.
