Clementine Gravity and Topography Data

July 5, 2023. The Clementine gravity and topography data sets have been migrated to the PDS4 standard. The original PDS3 data products, labels, and documentation remain available in their original archive volume. The only change is that PDS4 labels and documentation have been added to the archives. The original data files are unchanged. Please see geo_notes_and_errata.pdf for more information.

This archive contains gravity and topography data from the Clementine Mission to the Moon. The gravity products resulted from the processing of radio tracking data of the spacecraft, and topographic information was acquired by a laser ranging instrument (LIDAR).
