This week NLSI scientists gathered for the 43rd Lunar and Planetary Science Conference held in The Woodlands, Texas. This conference brings together international specialists in petrology, geochemistry, geophysics, geology, and astronomy to present the latest results of research in planetary science. The five-day conference was organized by topical symposia and problem-oriented sessions.

Each of the NLSI teams distributed summaries of their lunar research over the past three years. Below are links to the publicly available summaries that were distributed at LPSC:

The Moon as Cornerstone to the Terrestrial Planets: Carle Pieters (Brown/MIT)
