Geological Characterization of the Ina Shield Volcano Summit Pit Crater on the Moon: Evidence for Extrusion of Waning‐Stage Lava Lake Magmatic Foams and Anomalously Young Crater Retention Ages

Ina, a distinctive ~2 × 3 km D‐shaped depression, is composed of unusual bulbous‐shaped mounds surrounded by optically immature hummocky/blocky floor units. The crisp appearance, optical immaturity,

Ina pit crater on the Moon: Extrusion of waning-stage lava lake magmatic foam results in extremely young crater retention ages

The enigmatic Ina feature on the Moon was recently interpreted to represent extrusive basaltic volcanic activity within the past 100 m.y. of lunar history, an extremely young age for volcanism on the

The role of substrate characteristics in producing anomalously young crater retention ages in volcanic deposits on the Moon: Morphology, topography, subresolution roughness, and mode of emplacement of the Sosigenes lunar irregular mare patch

Lunar irregular mare patches (IMPs) comprise dozens of small, distinctive, and enigmatic lunar mare features. Characterized by their irregular shapes, well‐preserved state of relief, apparent optical

The Cauchy 5 Small, Low‐Volume Lunar Shield Volcano: Evidence for Volatile Exsolution‐Eruption Patterns and Type 1/Type 2 Hybrid Irregular Mare Patch Formation

The lunar shield volcano Cauchy 5, sitting at the low diameter‐height‐volume end of the population, is the only known example containing two different types of Irregular Mare Patches (IMPs) in very

Controls on Lunar Basaltic Volcanic Eruption Structure and Morphology: Gas Release Patterns in Sequential Eruption Phases

Assessment of mare basalt gas release patterns during individual eruptions provides the basis for predicting the effect of vesiculation processes on the structure and morphology of associated

Lava fountains from the 1999 Tvashtar Catena fissure eruption on Io: Implications for dike emplacement mechanisms, eruption rates, and crustal structure

The first direct evidence that patterns of basaltic eruptive activity may be very similar on Io and Earth was seen on November 26, 1999, when the solid-state imaging system on board the Galileo

The fate of pyroclasts produced in explosive eruptions on the asteroid 4 Vesta

Abstract— We evaluate the consequences of explosive activity having taken place during volcanic eruptions on the differentiated asteroid 4 Vesta, which is the likely parent body of the

The Origin of Ina: Evidence for Inflated Lava Flows on the Moon

[1] Ina is an enigmatic volcanic feature on the Moon known for its irregularly shaped mounds, the origin of which has been debated since the Apollo Missions. Three main units are observed on the

Ascent and eruption of basaltic magma on the earth and moon

Geological and physical observations and constraints are applied to the development of a model of the ascent and emplacement of basaltic magma on the earth and moon. Mathematical models of the nature

Numerical Modeling of Ejecta Dispersal from Transient Volcanic Explosions on Mars

The dynamics of ejecta dispersal in transient volcanic eruptions on Mars are distinct from those on Earth and Venus because of the low atmospheric pressure and gravitational acceleration. Numerical
