Wow! One of my fave moons. Thank you for your exiting new perspectives from this data set! The Uranian system seems like the black sheep of the solar system sometimes (the planet is bland [not lately!], the moons are small [so?, so is Iapetus], the inclination is awkward to design missions to [Argo *might* go to Neptune, is anyone seriously proposing a Uranus mission?] etc etc).

Does your image of Verona Rupes and Inverness Corona include the famous 10km (or was it 20km) cliff, or is that somewhere else? Are you going to add work for the other, less well imaged moons?

P

Edit: I just noticed your Ariel work on the blog - I should have gone there first!

The Verona cliff is just off to the right in this frame. It shows up on approach in the movie, now also on Facebook and Youtube. It may also show on some of the clips on the stereomoons blog

This is what it looks like when Dr. Schenk's image and topography maps are projected on a sphere.
