Integrated Spectral Analysis of Mare Soils and Craters : Applications to Eastern Nearside Basalts

  title={Integrated Spectral Analysis of Mare Soils and Craters : Applications to Eastern Nearside Basalts},
  author={Matthew Staid and Carle M. Pieters},
High spatial resolution Clementine images are examined to measure the reflectance properties of small and optically immature mare craters that have sampled discrete compositional units. The spectral properties of these relatively crystalline mare materials are compared to associated mature soils to determine the effects of space weathering on specific basalt types. Space weathering is observed to alter the optical properties of distinct lunar basalt units in a systematic manner allowing… CONTINUE READING
