Global assessment of pure crystalline plagioclase across the Moon and implications for the evolution of the primary crust

Abstract:

Recent advancements in visible to near infrared orbital measurements of the lunar surface have allowed the character and extent of the primary anorthositic crust to be studied at unprecedented spatial and spectral resolutions. Here we assess the lunar primary anorthositic crust in global context using a spectral parameter tool for Moon Mineralogy Mapper data to identify and map Fe‐bearing crystalline plagioclase based on its diagnostic 1.25 µm absorption band....
