Study on classification and identification of moonquake wave form

Study period:2000 - 2001
Research overview:
It is very important to identify the kind of moonquake only by the moonquake waveform obtained by the moon probe "LUNAR-A" as a method to estimate the focus when the number of penetrator is limited and sufficient information to identify the focus is not obtained. Considering the properties of the "LUNAR-A" moonquake mater, the maximum amplitude of the Apollo moonquake data, rising time, waveform envelope and so on are inspected in detail and the useful information for classifying the moonquake is surveyed.
