Water Fact File for Miranda

The Bottom Line:

Water and ice in amazing forms, as seen by the picture above...

 

Findings from Dr Kotwicki's 1991 Paper:

Miranda which has barely enough gravitational  pull to form a sphere, has a complex geological terrain, dominated by three enormous ovals, huge fracture zones, steep terraces and cliffs 10-20 km high.Both Miranda and Ariel have an unexpected degree of geologic activity  for such small bodies, which should be rather permanently frozen.
