"Geologic Processes on the Moon" was originally published in "Selenology," the quarterly journal of the American Lunar Society by society president Eric Douglass. Mr. Douglass has courteously released his essay to the Public Domain, and it is featured here in three parts.


This paper deals with the major processes that formed the features we see on the moon. These geologic processes are: the formation of craters, volcanic activity, and tectonic activity. Each of these will be dealt with in their respective sections below.
