Sixth Lunar Science Conference: Lunar Orbital Data Maps


Plates 5, 6, and 7. Radial, East, and North components, respectively of the fine scale lunar magnetic field as observed at the Apollo 16 Subsatellite during the first pass through the geomagnetic tail over the lunar longitude band from 80° to 200°. (See Russell et al., 1975 Proc. Lunar Sci. Conf. 6th, p.2955.) Average altitude was approximately 75 km. (See frontpiece Plate 7,Proc. Lunar Sci. Conf. 5th.) Prepared by C.T. Russell, P.J. Coleman, Jr., and G. Schubert, NASA/JPL.

Plates 8, 9, and 10. Radial, East, and North components, respectively of the fine scale lunar magnetic field as observed at the Apollo 16 Subsatellite during the second (final) pass through thr geomagnetic tail over the longitude band from 80° to 200°. (See Russell et al., 1975, Proc. Lunar Sci. Conf. 6th, p. 2955.) Altitude varied between 10 and 60 km ( See Plate 11). Prepared by C.T. Russell, P.J. Coleman, Jr., and G. Schubert, NASA/JPL.

Plate 11 and Plate 12. Average altitude of and number of orbits, respectively, during which magnetic measuremants (See Plates 8, 9, and 10) were made made by the Apollo 16 Subsatellite during the second pass through the geomagnetic tail. Prepared by C.T. Russell, P.J. Coleman, Jr., and G. Schubert, NASA/JPL. (see Russell et al., 1975, Proc. Lunar Sci. Conf. 6th, p.2955.)
