Important to understanding the process of basin formation on planetary bodies are constraints on the mineralogy and depths of origin of interior ring structures. We summarize previous analyses of the mineralogy of basin materials on the Moon and use hyperspectral image-cubes from the Chandrayaan-1’s Moon Mineralogy Mapper (M) to determine the mineralogy of interior rings in lunar protobasins and peak-ring basins. Nearly all peak rings outside of South Pole-Aitken (SPA) basin have extensive… CONTINUE READING
