Abstract

When the call for papers for a special issue of Icarus devoted to analysis of data from the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter mission was announced in March 2015 we envisioned a single issue with only a possibility of a second. We certainly were gratified by the response from within and outside the LRO instrument teams such that we were compelled to publish this the third and final volume. It is a testament to the Moon as object that enhances our understanding of the history of the Earth-Moon system, the Solar System as a whole, and geologic processes that take place on the Moon and other atmosphere-less bodies. Many of the publications included lead authors outside the LRO team of co-investigators, using data from multiple instruments from LRO and other recent missions.
