Locations and compositions of mare ponds in South pole-Aitken (SPA) basin are correlated to the structure of the SPA impact basin. The coverage of mare emplacements indicates that, inside the inner ring, the floor is relatively filled with mare deposits, whereas, in the regions of just inside the middle and outer rings, some mare extrusions exist. The lack of Hi-Ti basalt in mare ponds could result from the subsurface structure of the SPA post impact. Introduction: Most of volcanic activities… CONTINUE READING
