All craters digitized… and re-digitized!

In preparation of conducting the mathematical analyses of my mercurian craters, I have completed the GIS files of all 36 of these craters including the two or three that have less-than-optimal data files associated with them.  All MDIS, MLA/USGS, and... Continue Reading →

It’s Crater Time (part 1)

To make a long story short, the first order of business I have with my Masters project is to erode a fresh crater of roughly the same dimensions as Haughton crater and then compare the results to the level of... Continue Reading →
