Figure 8-5. Schematic cross sections
show radar responses of folds. (a) At a nominal incidence angle = 30 deg, symmetric folds appear asymmetric in the
image. Foreslopes are compressed and backslopes are expanded. (b)
Radar image and interpretive cross section of a series of folds in
Lavinia Planitia located at 36.4°S, 337.9°E. Illumination
is from the left at an incidence angle of 29 deg.
