Widespread distribution of OH/H2O on the lunar surface inferred from spectral data
Remote-sensing data from lunar orbiters have revealed spectral features consistent with the presence of OH or H2O on the lunar surface. Analyses of data from the Moon Mineralogy Mapper spectrometerExpand

The Search for Sulfuric Acid Octahydrate: Experimental Evidence
We have investigated the H2SO4/H2O binary liquid/solid phase diagram using a highly sensitive differential scanning calorimeter (DSC) and infrared spectroscopy of thin films. In particular we haveExpand

Lunar true polar wander inferred from polar hydrogen
The earliest dynamic and thermal history of the Moon is not well understood. The hydrogen content of deposits near the lunar poles may yield insight into this history, because these deposits (whichExpand

Thermal stability of water and hydroxyl on the surface of the Moon from temperature-programmed desorption measurements of lunar analog materials
Abstract The adsorption of molecular water onto lunar analog materials was investigated under ultra-high vacuum with the goal to better understand the thermal stability and evolution of water on theExpand

UV Photon-Induced Water Decomposition on Zirconia Nanoparticles
Formation of H2 from photolysis of water adsorbed on zirconia (ZrO2) nanoparticles using 254 nm (4.9 eV) and 185 nm (6.7 eV) photon irradiation was examined. The H2 yield was approximately an orderExpand

A PROMINENT AND UBIQUITOUS OH/H2O FEATURE IN CORRECTED LUNAR SPECTRA
Introduction: There is considerable interest in the spectral response of the lunar surface near 2.82 and 2.95 μm, where OH and H2O have strong absorptions. Previous studies have identified theseExpand

The Young Age of the LAMP-observed Frost in Lunar Polar Cold Traps
The Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter/Lyman Alpha Mapping Project (LAMP) ultraviolet instrument detected a 0.5-2% icy regolith mix on the floor of some of the southern pole permanently shadowed craters ofExpand

Water interactions with micronized lunar surrogates JSC-1A and albite under ultra-high vacuum with application to lunar observations
[1] Interactions of molecular water with two lunar regolith surrogates (micronized JSC-1A and albite) were examined using temperature program desorption (TPD) and diffuse reflectance infrared FourierExpand

Temperature programmed desorption studies of water interactions with Apollo lunar samples 12001 and 72501
Abstract The desorption activation energies for water molecules chemisorbed on Apollo lunar samples 72501 (highlands soil) and 12001 (mare soil) were determined by temperature programmed desorptionExpand
