- IAU page: Neison
- Depth data from Kurt Fisher database
- Westfall, 2000: 1.6 km
- Cherrington, 1969: 2.4 km
- Measures on LRO QuickMap give ave depth about 1.2 km
- The shadow in LO-IV-104H indicates the east rim of Neison is 1250-1400 km above the flat floor (increasing to the south). The ring around Meton C is of similar elevation at its highest points. 9-km diameter Neison A (on the southeast rim) is also a little over 1200 m deep.
- Named for Edmund Neison (pseudonym) (1849-1940), a British astronomer and selenographer who published the classic reference, The Moon, in 1876. Nevill spent most of his professional life at the Natal Observatory in South Africa, where the largest telescope was an 8-inch Grubb refractor. See the Astronomical Society of South Africa's biography of him for further details.
- Named by Lamèch (Whitaker, p 228), Neison was part of the original IAU nomenclature of Named Lunar Formations.
