The journal Geosciences is accepting papers for a Special Issue related to recent advances in studies of the Moon. Since the Apollo era, sample studies, remote analyses, and dynamical models continue to tease out details related to the Moon’s formation and evolution. Additionally, the international lunar science community is eager to continue its presence on the Moon, as evidenced by recent, upcoming, and future lunar missions. All of these topics are of great interest to the broader geoscience community.
The Special Issue welcomes papers that describe studies related to any of the above topics and will be an outlet for rapid, accessible, and peer-reviewed publications. The editors especially welcome papers from young investigators.Dr. Nicolle E. B. Zellner
