Diverse Geology

The surface of Titania has recorded many different types of geologic activity throughout its history. In addition to numerous impact scars, there is a large, trench-like feature near the terminator at middle right that suggests at least one episode of tectonics. A basin-like structure is visible near the upper right of the image. The neutral gray color of Titania is characteristic of all the Uranian satellites. Surface details about 9 km (6 mi) in size are visible. Titania has a diameter of 1600 km (1000 mi).
