In less than a decade, the long-held view that the tectonics of the Moon were largely just a consequence of the evolution of the near side mare basins has been changed dramatically. The discovery of a vast population of small-scale lobate thrust fault scarps in images returned by the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter Camera (LROC) has provided evidence that the Moon experienced global-scale tectonics. Efforts to date these small fault scarps indicate a young age, actively forming within the last 50 to 100 Ma. High-resolution images and topographic data obtained by the Lunar Orbiter Laser Altimeter (LOLA) and LROC stereo imaging...
