Poster Session: Lunar Mineralogy and Petrology

Wednesday, March 15, 2023, 6:30 PM

Kremer C. H.* Glotch T. D. Pieters C. M.
Quantitative Compositional Determination of Extraterrestrial Rocks in the 4-8 Micron Intermediate Infrared (IMIR) Range [#2202]
Intermediate infrared (IMIR) spectral bands provide accurate Mg# estimates in extraterrestrial rocks samples with mafic to ultramafic composition.
Xiao X.* Yu S. Huang J. Zhang H. Zhang Y. et al.
Thermal Conductivity of Lunar Regolith at Chang'E-4 (CE-4) Landing Site [#2147]
Temperature probes onboard the Chang’E-4 (CE-4) spacecraft provide the first in situ regolith temperature measurements from the far side of the Moon.
Easter P.* Long-Fox J. Britt D.
The Application and Modification of Geotechnical Engineering Methodologies on the Lunar Surface [#1107]
Looking into some of the fundamental equations within geotechnical engineering and how they change given the conditions on the lunar surface.
Qian Y.* She Z. He Q. Xiao L. Wang Z. et al.
Mineralogy and Chronology of Young Mare Volcanism in the Procellarum KREEP Terrane [#1301]
Use in situ CE-3 and CE-5 data and the returned CE-5 samples to shed the light on mineralogy and chronology of young volcanism on the Moon.
Valencia S. N.* Curran N. M. Bullock E. S. Corrigan C. M. Cohen B. A. et al.
Petrography and Chemistry of Lithic Fragments from the Apollo 17 73002 Drive Tube [#1871]
As a part of the ANGSA program, we have analyzed 14 lithic fragments. Here we present the petrography and chemistry of those fragments.
Shearer C. K.* Simon S. B. Neal C. R. Valenciano J. L. Eckley S. et al.
High-Ti Melts from the Taurus-Littrow Valley (TLV). A Product of Volcanism or Impact? An ANGSA Investigation Using the Station 3 Double Drive Tube 73001-73002 [#1770]
Are all high-Ti nelts derived from melting of the lunar interior? Here we explore other possible petrologic models for producing high-Ti melts.
Du T. T.* Zhang A. C.
Petrogenesis and Shock Metamorphism of the Newly-Found Basaltic Lunar Meteorite Northwest Africa 14526: Preliminary Results [#2169]
We report the preliminary results of our petrographic and mineralogical observations on Northwest Africa (NWA) 14526.
Yin C. X.* Fu X. H.
Bulk TiO2 Content of Chang’E-5 Mare Basalt and Its Classification: Evidence from Composition of Pyroxene [#1832]
High-Ti origin of Chang’e-5 mare basalts: Evidence from composition of pyroxene. .
Lu X. J.* Ling Z. C. Chen J. Cao H. J. Liu C. Q.
Mineralogy from In Situ Measurements and Returned Samples of Chang’E-5 Young Basalts [#2035]
Spectral characteristics from in situ measurements and returned samples of Chang’E-5 young basalts are investigated for mineralogy at Chang’E-5 landing site.
Shibakura T. S.* Ogawa Y. O. Ohtake M. O. Rage R. U. K.
Automatic Production of the Geologic Classification Map of the Moon Based on the Kaguya/SP Data [#2200]
Automatic production of the geologic classification map of the Moon based on the Kaguya/SP data.
Wang X.* Clark A. M. Ellis J. Ertel A. F. Fields B. D. et al.
Proposed Lunar Measurements of r-Process Radioisotopes to Distinguish Origin of Deep-Sea 244Pu [#1935]
We discuss how measuring 244Pu and other radioisotopes like 129I in lunar regolith can probe whether the deep-sea 244Pu is from a nearby supernova or kilonova.
Durgude S. N.* Bhagat A. Raj S. Selvam S. Sindagi S.
Lunar Mineralogy and the Quest for the Co-Evolution of the Earth-Moon System [#2486]
The abstract describes the analysis done on the mineralogical data of Earth and the Moon to find a correlation between the system that would suggest a co-evolution.
Li Y.* Fa W. Jia B.
Morphology of Very Small Impact Craters at the Chang’E-3/4/5 Landing Regions [#1192]
Morphology of decimeter- to hectometer-scale craters at the CE-3/4/5 landing regions are analyzed using the high-resolution optical images and topography data.
