Lunar crustal magnetic anomalies and associated albedo features
SPEAKER: Ian Garrick-Bethell (University of California, Santa Cruz)
The origin of regions of strongly magnetized crust remains a significant open problem in lunar science. Magnetized crust may provide insight into the past history of a lunar dynamo, or the existence of transient magnetic fields produced by impacts. However, magnetized crust is also interesting for another reason: some magnetized regions are associated with very unusual albedo patterns on the lunar surface. I will present our current understanding of magnetic anomalies, as well as two competing theories for the formation of their associated albedo patterns.
Ian Garrick-Bethell is an assistant professor at the University of California, Santa Cruz. His research interests are in lunar magnetism and lunar crustal structure.
