Data from the lunar-orbiting Apollo 17 radar sounding experiment (60-m wavelength) have been examined in both digital and holographic formats. Surface backscatter (clutter) which masks possible radar returns originating from subsurface changes in lunar electrical properties was reduced by simultaneously comparing radar data from two orbits. Radar returns that correlate from orbit to orbit form two distinct alignments in Mare Serenitatis and one in Mare Crisium. It is proposed that these… CONTINUE READING
