dc.description.abstract Attention is given to lunar core studies, surface soil studies, and surfaces process studies. Also considered are mare basalts, with emphasis on mineralogy and petrology, chemical and isotopic studies, and constraints and models of basalt evolution, along with breccia and highland samples with attention given to geochronology, boulders and consortium studies and the formation of highland samples. Remote sensing and photogeology of the moon, crustal bombardment, physical properties of the moon, and comparative planetology are also discussed. en
