Morphological characteristics of lunar craters with small depth/diameter ratio. II

  • 61 Accesses

Abstract

The morphological characteristics of craters with relatively small ratio depth/diameter are discussed. It is observed that many morphological similarities exist among craters possessing ratiosd/D which do not differ considerably. The distribution of 1933 craters with respect to diameter, depth and the depth/diameter ratio is presented.
