The 220-km-diameter Renoir basin has a well-preserved peak ring, within which are situated the two flooded craters near the center of this image. Both craters formed after Renoir but before the basin interior was resurfaced by smooth plains. Subsequent tectonic activity was then responsible for the sinuous lobate scarp that cross-cuts the center crater. Together, impact cratering, volcanism, and tectonism have helped shape the Renoir basin, substantially modifying its original form.
