Geologic map of the Eudoxus Quadrangle of the Moon

January 9, 2023

The Eudoxus quadrangle is in the northeastern part of the Moon's nearside hemisphere. It is bordered on the west by Montes Caucasus, which form part of the main rim of the multi-ringed Imbrium basin (Hartmann and Kuiper, 1962), and on the southside by Mare Serenitatis, which occupies another large multi-ringed basin. South and East of the prominent crater Eudoxus elevations decrease and the rugged highland terrain becomes more subdued and covered by mare materials in the Serenitatis basin, Lucas Somniorum and Lucas Mortis.
