Although the forms on both planets are not identical, they are similar enough to have been produced by similar processes. Relationships of width vs. length, length vs. area, and width vs. area suggest that the forms have developed an ideal shape, elongated sufficiently to reduce pressure drag in the responsible fluid, but not so long that they created excessive skin resistance. -from Authors
