Usage examples of "mensae".

Where the ice lapped against the foot of the Great Escarpment there were several mensae and colles regions that had become offshore archipelagoes, and these, as well as the mainland coastline proper, sported many beetling sea cliffs, bluffs, crater bays, fossa fjords, and long stretches of low smooth strand.

They flew north through the nights, into the equatorial region, then onward to the Great Escarpment, to the Deuteronilus mensae north of Xanthe-wild fretted terrain, the mensae like an archipelago of stack islands, dotting a sand sea.

The mensae were a series of long mesas, like islands of the southern highlands standing out in the shallows of the northern plains.
