Smith: Identification, Distribution and Significance of Lunar Volcanic Domes

(glossary entry)


Describes and lists volcanic features on the Moon (as identified on photos taken from lunar orbit), and compares them to similar structures on Earth.

Additional Information

  • Lists approximately 300 features. Although the title of the table implies they are all domes, the list actually seems to include suspected volcanic features of many kinds.
  • The usefulness of the work is limited by the fact that the locations of the features are identified only by their millimeter positions on specific Lunar Orbiter prints.
