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

Spatiospectral Concentration on a Sphere
We pose and solve the analogue of Slepian's time-frequency concentration problem on the surface of the unit sphere to determine an orthogonal family of strictly bandlimited functions that are optimally concentrated within a closed region of the sphere or, alternatively, of strictly spacelimited functions in the spherical harmonic domain.

Nonuniform cratering of the Moon and a revised crater chronology of the inner Solar System
Abstract We model the cratering of the Moon and terrestrial planets from the present knowledge of the orbital and size distribution of asteroids and comets in the inner Solar System, in order toExpand

Thickness of the Martian crust: Improved constraints from geoid-to-topography ratios
[1] The average crustal thickness of the southern highlands of Mars was investigated by calculating geoid-to-topography ratios (GTRs) and interpreting these in terms of an Airy compensation modelExpand

The Constitution and Structure of the Lunar Interior
The current state of understanding of the lunar interior is the sum of nearly four decades of work and a range of exploration programs spanning that same time period. Missions of the 1960s includingExpand

Thermal and Magmatic Evolution of the Moon
As with all science, our continually developing concepts of lunar evolution are firmly tied to both new types of observations and the integration of these observations to the known pool of data. ThisExpand

Nonuniform cratering of the terrestrial planets
Article history: We estimate the impact flux and cratering rate as a function of latitude on the terrestrial planets using a model distribution of planet crossing asteroids and comets (Bottke, W.F.,Expand

Localized spectral analysis on the sphere
It is often advantageous to investigate the relationship between two geophysical data sets in the spectral domain by calculating admittance and coherence functions. While there exist powerfulExpand

Minimum-Variance Multitaper Spectral Estimation on the Sphere
We develop a method to estimate the power spectrum of a stochastic process on the sphere from data of limited geographical coverage. Our approach can be interpreted either as estimating the globalExpand

Compositional variations of the lunar crust: Results from radiative transfer modeling of central peak spectra
[1] We present model mineralogy of impact crater central peaks combined with crustal thickness and crater central peak depth of origin models to report multiple perspectives of lunar crustalExpand
