Abstract

Seismological studies on the moon's surface have shown that wave propagation in the first few kilometers of depth is characterized by velocities and absorptions anomalously low compared to results of similar studies on earth. These results have given rise to some controversy and no single explanation has been generally adopted to date. This paper is centered around the thesis that it is the extensive fracturing in an environment devoid of liquids and gases on the moon which has drastically altered the elastic and anelastic properties of lunar rocks.
