Koyal Group InfoMag - Planetary Scientists Create Global Geologic Map of Ganymede
Other materials found on Ganymede were created by several types of impact features, ranging from impact craters to viscously relaxed impact features called palimpsests to the large impact basin, Gilgamesh, in the southern hemisphere.
With its varied terrain and possible underground ocean, Ganymede is considered a prime target in the search for habitable environments in the Solar System, and the scientists hope the new map will aid in future exploration.
