Topography of the Moon from the Clementine lidar

  title={Topography of the Moon from the Clementine lidar},
  author={David E. Smith and Mafia T. Zuber and Gregory A. Neumann and Frank G. R. Lemoine},
Range measurements from the lidar instrument carried aboard the Clementine spacecraft have been used to produce an accurate global topographic model of the Moon. This paper discusses the function of the lidar; the acquisition, processing, and filtering of observations to produce a global topographic model; and the determination of parameters that define the fundamental shape of the Moon. Our topographic model; a 72nd degree and order spherical harmonic expansion of lunar radii, is designated… CONTINUE READING
