New book "Atlas of the Gravity and Magnetic Fields of the Moon"

Günther Kletetschka, Associate Professor at the Department of Hydrogeology, Engineering Geology and Applied Geophysics, has become one of the co-authors of a major new monographic publication from Springer. The book contains information on the geology of the Moon together with basic information on magnetic fields, mapping and topographic models.


About this book

This book presents gravity aspects (gravity disturbance, Marussi tensor, two gravity invariants, their certain ratio, the strike angles, and the virtual deformations) which are computed and evaluated for the Moon, using the recent static global gravity field model (GRGM1200A) to degree and order of 600 in spherical harmonic expansion. The magnetic anomaly model and surface topography (from the LOLA mission) are added. Results are shown for the whole Moon, for its segments around the Moon and as zooms for selected impact craters, maria and catenae; they are shortly interpreted and opened for further selenologic applications. The book contains information about the geology of the Moon, together with basic information about the magnetic field, mapping and topography models.
