  Description:
    Abstract:
      The Philus Sulcus quadrangle is located in the anti-Jovian
      hemisphere of Ganymede, the third and largest of the
      Galilean satellites. The 180° meridian defining the
      quadrangle’s east boundary passes through the anti-Jovian
      point at the equator, and the 270° meridian forming the
      quadrangle’s west boundary crosses the trailing point in
      the satellite’s orbit. Ganymede consists of a mixture of
      rock and ice having an average density of 1.93 g/cm 3
      (Smith and others, 1979a, b). The high albedo of the
      satellite’s surface (40 to 60 percent) and absorption
      features in its spectrum suggest that water ice is the
      dominant surface material and that it is intermixed with at
      least several percent of silicates and minerals containing
      oxidized iron (Clark and others, 1986). The surface is
      about equally divided between light and dark materials
      whose albedos may differ as a result of slightly different
      silicate contents. Both materials contain craters ranging
      in morphology from fresh (sharp rims and bright rays) to degraded.
