Clementine UVVIS FeO Color Binned 1km
Clementine derived iron abundance (as weight percent FeO) data. This FeO map is derived from Clementine UVVIS data as described by Lawrence and others in 2002. FeO weight percent ranges from 0 to ~25% in this map. Lawrence et al. (2002) modified the derivation algorithms originally presented by Lucey et al. (1995, 1998, 2000). Note that further refinements to the FeO abundance algorithm for the lunar surface have been presented by LeMouelic et al. (2000) and (for the lunar maria) Wilcox et al. (2005). This FeO abundance map is a binned color product in which the FeO weight percent values are expressed as color ranges as shown in the legend (side bar).
This iron abundance map has a spatial resolution of 1.0 km/pixel; users can create full-resolution (~100 m/pixel) versions of these maps by applying the simple math equations found in these references to bands 2 (750 nm) and 4 (950 nm) of the Clementine UVVIS data.
This base has not been updated to the latest LOLA derived control network.

- For the original mosaic approximately 265, 000 match points were collected at the USGS from ~43, 000 UVVIS 750nm images providing global coverage. About 80% of these points were collected via autonomous procedures, whereas the remaining 20% required the more time consuming but highly accurate pattern-recognition capability of the human eye-brain.
