Major lunar crustal terranes: Surface expressions and crust‐mantle origins
In light of global remotely sensed data, the igneous crust of the Moon can no longer be viewed as a simple, globally stratified cumulus structure, composed of a flotation upper crust of anorthositeExpand

Lunar iron and titanium abundance algorithms based on final processing of Clementine ultraviolet‐visible images
The Clementine mission to the Moon returned global imaging data collected by the ultraviolet visible (UVVIS) camera. This data set is now in a final state of calibration, and a five-bandExpand

Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter Camera (LROC) Instrument Overview
The Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter Camera (LROC) Wide Angle Camera (WAC) and Narrow Angle Cameras (NACs) are on the NASA Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO). The WAC is a 7-color push-frame camera (100Expand

Rock types of South Pole‐Aitken basin and extent of basaltic volcanism
The enormous pre-Nectarian South Pole-Aitken (SPA) basin represents a geophysically and compositionally unique region on the Moon. We present and analyze the mineralogical diversity across this basinExpand

Clementine images of the lunar sample‐return stations: Refinement of FeO and TiO2 mapping techniques
Clementine UVVIS images of the lunar sample-return sites have been processed and used to produce refined calibrations for the iron and titanium determination algorithms of Lucey et al. [1995, 1996].Expand

Fragments of quartz monzodiorite and felsite in Apollo 14 soil particles
Samples of 'evolved' lithologies, felsite, quartz monzodiorite (QMD), and whitlockite-rich quartz monzodiorite, were identified compositionally and petrographically among 2-4-mm soil particles fromExpand

The case for an Imbrium origin of the Apollo thorium‐rich impact‐melt breccias
Abstract— Mafic, Th-rich impact-melt breccias, most of which are identified with the composition known as low-K Fra Mauro (LKFM), are the most common rock type in the nonmare regoliths of the ApolloExpand

A revised algorithm for calculating TiO2 from Clementine UVVIS data: A synthesis of rock, soil, and remotely sensed TiO2 concentrations
[1] Investigating mare basalt compositions, at both the sample and remote-sensing level for the Apollo and Luna mare sites, reveals the need for a more complex regression procedure than previouslyExpand

The materials of the lunar Procellarum KREEP Terrane: A synthesis of data from geomorphological mapping, remote sensing, and sample analyses
Major features of the Moon's Procellarum KREEP Terrane include subdued relief and extensive resurfacing with mare basalt, consistent with high concentrations of Th and other heat-producing elementsExpand
