Additional Information

  • Liebig Ir (in the nomenclature of Blagg and Müller is described in some detail in a 1965 article by William Quaide (see references). In that article, it is noted that in parts it looks like a "normal fault" (the modern Rupes Liebig), and north of that like a conventional rille (that portion currently being assigned to Rimae Mersenius).
