Evidence for ultra-cold traps and surface water ice in the lunar south polar crater Amundsen

Abstract:

The northern floor and wall of Amundsen crater, near the lunar south pole, is a permanently shaded region (PSR). Previous study of this area using data from the Lunar Orbiter Laser Altimeter (LOLA), Diviner and LAMP instruments aboard Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) shows a spatial correlation between brighter 1064 nm albedo, annual maximum surface temperatures low enough to enable persistence of surface water ice (<110 K), and anomalous ultraviolet radiation. We present results using data...
