Researchers from Curtin University, in Western Australia, were able to create a high-resolution gravity map of the Moon by using data collected satellites, according to the news release.
In producing the best gravity map ever compiled of any planet or moon--Earth included--the mission illustrates how violently the moon's crust was pummeled by meteorites over eons.
Closer geological and structural observation (Figures 1 & 2) of this anomaly's axes suggested that its general trend followed an inferred granite intrusion area known as So'o granite The quite different nature of the Bouguer gravity map on the northern side was marked by gravity highs, bounded by relatively steep gradients occurring over or near higher metamorphic formations (granulite, migmatite and micaschist) and other granitic plutons, suggesting the existence of a suture zone between two of the crust's blocks (Kennedy, 1964).
The presence of these kinds of traps, whose existence can be established from a more detailed gravity map, will constitute prospects of oil and gas concentration.
