...A. Valantinas; P.H. Schultz Abstract New observations of wrinkle ridges on the nearside maria of the Moon display signs of ongoing ridge modification. In association with the wrinkle ridges, we observed an absence of superposed craters, narrow (<30 m) lobate scarps and graben, and thermal...

... Mare basalts cover much of the Earth-facing side of the Moon. The underlying cause for this distribution has been attributed to an ancient nearside megabasin, asymmetric accretion, and differential tidal effects. While each hypothesis is plausible, the hypothesis for a megabasin also accounts...

... and Morrison (1976) suggested, prior to recognition of the scale of the South Pole–Aitken basin, that some areas of the southern highlands may be almost unmantled by basin debris surges and thus represent in situ ancient materials. Instead, the southern nearside highlands are composed of deep material...

Figure 5. One model of the mare thickness over the nearside Procellarum region. This model assumes the feldspathic crust was isostatic prior to mare infilling, but neglects the effect of flexure and thus underestimates mare thickness ( Andrews-Hanna et al. 2014 ). Background image is a LRO Wide
