dc.description.abstract This map is based on data collected by the Lunar Orbiter Laser Altimeter (LOLA) onboard the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO). The map shows slopes derived from the LOLA 10-m elevation product (NASA Goddard Space Flight Center; Smith et al., 2010; Smith et al., 2017). The slope is represented with four traditional colors 0° to 5° (bright green), 5° to 10° (dark green), 10° to 15° (yellow), and >15° (red). A second version of the map, with colors that may be attractive to those with color blindness, is also available: 0° to 5° (blue), 5° to 10° (darker blue), 10° to 15° (yellow), and >15° (red). The map covers the region from latitude 85°S to the pole on the rim of Shackleton crater. Slope data are overlain on a derived hillshade with solar azimuth 45°W and solar elevation 45°. en
