Young lunar volcanic features: Thermophysical properties and formation

Abstract:

Irregular mare patches (IMPs) are small volcanic features on the lunar nearside with young model ages. Several formation mechanisms have been proposed including: caldera collapse, explosive outgassing, lava flow inflation, pyroclastic eruption, and regolith drainage. We present new observations of the four largest IMPs (Sosigenes, In a, Cauchy-5, and Maskelyne) using the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) Diviner Lunar Radiometer (Diviner) and evaluate the formation hypotheses in the context ...
