Right: Consolidated Lunar Atlas, Plate C11 Dorsum Von Cotta is the north-south ridge to the right of center (closest to the terminator). To its immediate west is the parallel, but much shorter, [/Dorsum%20Owen Dorsum Owen], and to the south the diagonal ridge is a part of [/Dorsum%20Buckland Dorsum Buckland]. The north-south ridge passing through the crater on the far left is [/Dorsum%20Gast Dorsum Gast]. The diagonal ridge above it is unnamed. The original IAU approval of the name Dorsum Von Cotta “as assigned” on the [/LTO LTO] charts would seem to apply only to the upper part, next to [/Dorsum%20Owen Dorsum Owen], for that is all that is labeled on the LTO’s and the accompanying LM-42. However, the position and diameter now given in the on-line [/IAU%20Planetary%20Gazetteer IAU Planetary Gazetteer] would seem to include the entire ridge, including possibly the part where it turns sharply to the southeast, paralleling [/Dorsum%20Buckland Dorsum Buckland]. That portion of the ridge is clearly depicted, but unlabeled, on LTO-42D1.

Additional Information


Carl Bernard; German Earth scientist (1808-1879).
  • Dorsum Von Cotta was among the many names approved "as now assigned and printed on the [/LTO 1:250,000 lunar map series]" (LTO's) in [/IAU%20Transactions%20XVIB IAU Transactions XVIB]. Since the southward extension beyond the latitude of [/Aratus%20CA Aratus CA] was not labeled as part of Dorsum Von Cotta on any of the LTO's, or on the accompanying LM-42 it is a bit hard to understand how the position and diameter listed in the on-line [/IAU%20Planetary%20Gazetteer IAU Planetary Gazetteer] came to include that area (however logical the extension may seem). - JimMosher JimMosher
