  Description:
    Abstract:
      Ganymede is the largest of the Jovian satellites. Its
      density of 1.9 g/cm 3 (Morrison, 1982) and surface
      composition of water ice (Pilcher and others, 1972),
      combined with inferences from cosmochemical (Consolmagno
      and Lewis, 1976a) and thermal models (Consolmagno and
      Lewis, 1976b), suggest that Ganymede has a core composed of
      silicates and a mantle and crust largely composed of water
      ice. Imaging by two Voyager spacecraft, locally at
      resolutions of less than 1 km/picture element, showed that
      the surface is about equally divided into dark and light
      terrains, the dark terrain having an average albedo of
      0.35, the light terrain of 0.44 (Squyres and Veverka, 1981).
    Purpose:
    Supplemental_Information:
      The Memphis Facula (Memphis 'Bright Spot') quadrangle
      occupies a sector of Ganymede that is shared by the
      hemispheres that are antipodal to Jupiter and leading in
      Ganymede's orbit. lt is covered by Voyager 2
      high-resolution images, the best of which, near the east
      margin of the contiguously mapped area, have resolutions of
      less than 1 km/picture element. These images are also near
      the terminator and give good morphologic information
      because of accentuation by shadows. Images near the west
      margin of the map area have higher sun angles and are more
      suitable for albedo information.
