Abstract

The Mercury Laser Altimeter, an instrument onboard the MESSENGER spacecraft, is currently providing precise, high-resolution measurements of the topography of the northern hemisphere of Mercury as the spacecraft executes its orbital mapping mission. The altimeter data are contributing to studies of planetary shape, crater and basin structure, tectonics, volcanism and internal structure. Collectively these observations will inform studies to reconstruct Mercury’s geological and thermal evolution.
