Abstract:

Major lunar features, such as the craters and maria, have been the subject of such a long and sometimes bitter controversy that minor lunar features have generally received little attention. As a result, little is known about features such as rilles, wrinkle ridges and rays. As linear elements, they have two properties which can be compared length and direction. The purpose of this article is to report the results of an examination of linear elements on Mare Humorum in which possible interrelationships of these elements are explored.
