Abstract Many studies exist on magmatic volatiles (H, C, N, F, S, Cl) in and on the Moon, within the last several years, that have cast into question the post-Apollo view of lunar formation, the distribution and sources of volatiles in the Earth-Moon system, and the thermal and magmatic evolution of the Moon. However, these recent observations are not the first data on lunar volatiles. When Apollo samples were first returned, substantial efforts were made to understand volatile elements, and a… Expand

Late-stage magmatic outgassing from a volatile-depleted Moon
TLDR
It is shown, using the “Rusty Rock” impact melt breccia, 66095, that volatile enrichment on the lunar surface occurred through vapor condensation, showing that much of the lunar interior must be significantly depleted in volatile elements and compounds and that volatile-rich rocks on the Lunar surface formed through vaporcondensation.

TLDR
In this model, the volatile loss requires preferential delivery and retention of late-accreted volatiles to the Earth compared with the Moon, and Parent-body size and the existence of early atmospheres are likely to represent fundamental controls on planetary volatile retention or loss. Expand

Lunar apatite with terrestrial volatile abundances
TLDR
Quantitative ion microprobe measurements of late-stage apatite from lunar basalt 14053 are reported that document concentrations of H, Cl and S that are indistinguishable from apatites in common terrestrial igneous rocks, suggesting portions of the lunar mantle or crust are more volatile-rich than previously thought.

Volatile content of lunar volcanic glasses and the presence of water in the Moon’s interior
TLDR
The results indicate that, contrary to prevailing ideas, the bulk Moon might not be entirely depleted in highly volatile elements, including water, and the presence of water must be considered in models constraining the Moon’s formation and its thermal and chemical evolution. Expand
