...-volume effusive volcanism ceased about 3.5 billion years ago due to planetary cooling. Mercury's crust then went into a state of global contraction, thereby impeding further magma ascent. However, some smaller-scale volcanism continued at zones of crustal weakness, particularly at impact craters. Much...
