dc.description.abstract Papers are presented outlining various comparisons of Mercury and the moon. Topics include the planetary magnetism and the interiors of the moon and Mercury, the relationship between crustal tectonics and internal evolution, global tectonics, the origin and relative age of lunar and Mercurian intercrater plains, and the relative preservation states of secondary craters. Comparisons are also discussed between lunar and Mercurian rayed craters, large impact structures, isostasy and average crustal viscosity. Attention is given to global seismic effects of basin-forming impacts, interpretations of optical observations of Mercury and the moon, and the production of simple molecules on the surface of Mercury. en
