Abstract: Previous HitGeologyTop of the Moon and Meteorites


E. A. King, Jr.

Our knowledge of the lunar surface has progressed greatly with the advent of high resolution photography from impacted, orbital and soft landed spacecraft. Conventional photo-geologic techniques have been used to construct "geological" maps of the lunar surface. Although much information has been obtained regarding the topography and surface features of the Moon, little is known regarding the bulk composition or composition of surface rocks. Some meteorites must originate from the lunar surface. The study of these objects is a logical preparation for analysis of lunar materials.
