Is Rima Calippus a sinuous rille? Or is it something else? Or... is it perhaps a mixture of different sorts of rilles?
Rima Calippus is not mentioned in the catalog of Sinuous Rilles, compiled by Debra Hurwitz and colleagues.
Called a Sinuous Rille by Drew Enns in the LROC article Rima Calippus (post number 299).
Another question: Is there on the moon perhaps also a fifth kind of rille, other than the sinuous rille, the linear rille, the concentric rille, and the craterfloor-concentric rille? - DannyCaes Jan 17, 2018
