- From the shadows in LO-V-030H, the west rim of Barringer is 3700-5100 m above the floor. The central peak is at least 1950 m tall. - Jim Mosher
- Central peak composition: GNTA1 & GNTA2 (Tompkins & Pieters, 1999)
- Named for Daniel Moreau Barringer (1860-1929) an American engineer and geologist. Barringer is best known for his persistent arguments that what is now known as Meteor (or Barringer) Crater in Arizona (but then known as Coon Butte) was caused by the impact of an iron metorite and his attempts to exploit the site commercially. Barringer's conclusions contradicted those of the eminent American geologist G. K. Gilbert, who was, ironically, an early advocate of the impact theory of lunar cratering.
