Planets Mercury- cratered, highly volcanic (basaltic lava), no evidence of modification by fluvial, eolian, or glacial processes. Venus- thick gas-CO 2 atmosphere, similar surface to earth with volcanic plains, mountains, and volcanoes, some cratering, relatively young surface <500myo, dominated by volcanic activity. 80% of surface is volcanic plains Mars- cratered, evidence of modification, mostly eolian now, nearly all water is frozen in ice caps or ground ice, one of the universe’s largest volcanoes- Olympus Mons Earths moon- cratered highlands, smooth lower regions of basaltic lava, no modification, some structural deformation, which formed grabens. Jupiter- no solid surface gaseous layers of hydrogen and helium gas, 16 moons- 4 inner moons (Io) that are geologically active, giant red spot
