A wrinkle ridge or several wrinkle ridges that form a continuous or semicontinuous ring.
Wrinkle-ridge rings are composed of arcuate segments or a full circle of “wrinkle ridges,” which may continue in a “linear ridge”. On Mars the two sides of some rings are composed of two separate linear, parallel wrinkle ridges arcing in opposing directions (Neel and Mueller 2007). Lamont on the Moon is a pair of concentric wrinkle-ridge rings with several connected radiating wrinkle ridges (Wood et al. 2005).
