Applicant -- Radar Investigations of Volcanic Complexes on the Moon and Mars

Wednesday, August 30, 2017

Radar provides a unique opportunity to explore beneath the surface of planetary bodies and gather information regarding subsurface structure and composition. I will present the application of Earth-based and orbital radar systems to the study of flood basalts on the Moon and Mars. Radar has enabled us to place new constraints on the mapping of volcanic provinces and has led to the discovery of associated landforms, including collapsed lava tubes on the Moon and buried flood channels on Mars.
