This (right) and the next six pictures are enlargements of specific
areas to show the detailed form of the mare ridges seen at much smaller
scale in figure 74. Here can be seen a small segment of the most prominent
ridge enlarged about 45 times. When seen in detail, the ridge is spectacularly
crisp and well formed. The main ridge here is shaped like a string of sausages.
Smaller wormy ridges appear on either side. Cracks in the top of the ridge
probably formed by buckling of the mare lavas. As the following figure
show, most other parts of the ridge are less symmetrical than this part.
