January 5: Monthly Meeting
Lunar Geology and Upcoming Lunar Missions
Noah Petro, doctoral candidate at Brown university will present “Lunar Geology and Upcoming Lunar Missions.” Noah is broadly interested in the remote sensing of planetary surfaces and processes that modify these airless bodies. His graduate research has focused on lunar surface characterization with an emphasis on quantifying regolith modifications. As part of his research he has developed a model of regolith processing that has led to a unique method of determining the abundance of various components of lunar regolith.
