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
In the asymptotic limit of a small spatial region and a large spherical harmonic bandwidth, the spherical concentration problem reduces to its planar equivalent, which exhibits self-similarity when the Shannon number is kept invariant. Expand
The Crust of the Moon as Seen by GRAIL
The Moon's gravity field shows that the lunar crust is less dense and more porous than was thought, and high-resolution gravity data obtained from the dual Gravity Recovery and Interior Laboratory (GRAIL) spacecraft show that the bulk density of the Moon's highlands crust is substantially lower than generally assumed. Expand
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
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
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
Localized gravity/topography admittance and correlation spectra on Mars: Implications for regional and global evolution
From gravity and topography data collected by the Mars Global Surveyor spacecraft we calculate gravity/topography admittances and correlations in the spectral domain and compare them to thoseExpand
The “Procellarum KREEP Terrane”: Implications for mare volcanism and lunar evolution
Geophysical, remote-sensing, and sample data demonstrate that the Procellarum and Imbrium regions of the Moon make up a unique geochemical crustal province (here dubbed the Procellarum KREEPExpand
Gravity and Topography of the Terrestrial Planets
This chapter reviews our current knowledge of the gravity and topography of the terrestrial planets and describes the methods that are used to analyze these data. A general review of the mathematicalExpand
