Earth-Based Lunar Radar
This dataset contains
digital elevation models (DEMs) of the lunar
south pole. Elevation data at 200
pixels per degree of latitude (~150 m
spatial resolution) were obtained with radar
interferometry from the Goldstone Solar
System Radar and calibrated with Lunar
Reconnaissance Orbiter laser altimetry data.
Elevations are given in meters with respect
to a 1737.4 km sphere.
data were provided by Michael Busch and Jean-Luc Margot of the
University of California, Los Angeles, and archived by the PDS Geosciences
