Abstract:

The internal structure of the Moon has long been of interest to geophysicists. However, the history of investigation of this problem has been particularly frustrating, since advancements in our knowledge of the lunar parameters have been accompanied by increasingly complex and diverse models to explain them. The report reviews the pertinent data with emphasis on the Moons gross shape and considers the density distribution required under two plausible models of internal structure. Author
