[1] We examined the lunar swirls using data from the Moon Mineralogy Mapper (M). The improved spectral and spatial resolution of M over previous spectral imaging data facilitates distinction of subtle spectral differences, and provides new information about the nature of these enigmatic features. We characterized spectral features of the swirls, interswirl regions (dark lanes), and surrounding terrain for each of three focus regions: Reiner Gamma, Gerasimovich, and Mare Ingenii. We used… CONTINUE READING
