Sinus Iridum (Moon): Yutu GPR path 3D geo model3D Model
3D geomodel of the surface and subsurface of the Chang’e 3 landing site. This is essentially based on the Yutu rover GPR channel 2B data gathered along its traverse in Sinus Iridum on the Moon. Shallow surface layering within the first 15 meters of depth are modelled with the coloured surfaces thanks to the data contained in the radargram along the rover path. The possible outrcopping surfaces have been predicted on the eastern rim of the nearby crater.
The terrain is a LROC NAC DTM and basemap LROC NAC orthoimage, whereas the data points were taken from Xiao et al., (2015) and the modelling approach form Qiao e tal., (2016).
