Venus gravity anomalies


If we compare Free-air anomaly maps of the Earth and Venus, a structure similar to the basic 'hinge fault' pattern I have outlined in my Earth/Mars contraction model, can be seen.

There are continents, although they are not pushed together. There are no mid-ocean ridges, but there are fault lines in Aphrodite Terra. But the centres of volcanic activity appear to be around Beta Regio and Alta Regio, both volcanic rises with several types of volcanic features.
