Venus Nomenclature Changes

Detailed geologic mapping has revealed the need to change the approved nomenclature for four features on Venus. In quadrangle V-1, Szél-anya Dorsa has been changed to Szél-anya Lineae, and Tezan Dorsa has been changed to Tezan Lineae. In quadrangle V-6, the names Lorelei and Labé Patera have been dropped.
