Volcanism

(credit: NASA)
 

The terrain of Venus is mostly made up of plains (blue). In the middle of these plains there are areas of deformation such as tesserae (pink), volcanic structures such as coronae (peach), lava flows (red) and different sizes of volcano (orange).

Volcanoes are not concentrated in chains as on Earth, indicating the lack of tectonic plates.
