The purpose of the geo-model is to use all the available mapping information provide a comprehensive 3D model of both the structural setting and the thickness of the main units of the Rembrandt basin infilling. Rembrandt is a 715 km-diameter basin on Mercury centered at 32.89°S, 87.86°E. This crater constitutes an example of the stratigraphic variability. The uppermost smooth plains of volcanic origin, which are temporally unrelated to the impact event, have been distinguished by the surrounding smooth plains utilizing spectral information. The basin is crosscut in a NE-SW direction by a large thrust system more than 1000 km long named Enterprise Rupes attributed mainly to crustal shortening induced by global contraction.
