Gloria Tognon is a PhD student at the Center of Studies and Activities for Space «G. Colombo», University of Padua (Italy). Her research aims at realizing multi-informative planetary geological maps at the large and small scale respectively for Mercury and the Moon.
For the EGU general assembly 2021, Gloria presented a poster displaying age measurement results derived from different areas selected on the basaltic infilling of the lunar far side Tsiolkovskiy crater. The crater size-frequency distributions measurements allowed to discriminate distinct age ranges well ascribable to the different Clementine-based spectral units identified for the crater floor and thus enabled to reconstruct the succession of events of lava emplacement.
