|Lat: 40.0°S, Long: 56.0°W, Diam: 53 km, Depth: 1.29 km, Rükl: 62|
LO-IV-160H The 14-km crater at 10 o’clock is Lehmann D. Lehmann itself is just outside the north rim of the much larger Schickard, partially visible along the frame's lower margin.
Note also the sinuous rille outside the southeastern part of Lehmann's rim. This rille is connected with the northern part of Schickard's rim. It would be interesting to call this rille Rima Lehmann-Schickard.

Perhaps it might be interesting to know something about Inge Lehmann (1888-1993, Danish seismologist and geophysicist who discovered the Earth's inner core). - DannyCaes May 12, 2015
