The workshop on A Wet vs. Dry Moon: Exploring Volatile Reservoirs and Implications for the Evolution of the Moon and Future Exploration was held June 13–15, 2011, at the Lunar and Planetary Institute in Houston TX.

The purpose of this workshop was to bring together members of the planetary science community to discuss and integrate mission observations, laboratory measurements, and theoretical models for the volatile behavior and reservoirs on the Moon, their potential role in shaping the evolution of the Moon, and implications for future robotic and human exploration of the Moon. The workshop also examined the potential scientific importance of sealed Apollo samples that could shed light on recent observations and how they should be studied within the context of a well-thought-out sample consortium.

Presentations are now available on-line!
