Apollo lunar sounder experimentThe four basic data products from the ALSE are sounding, profiling, imaging, and noise measurements. Attention was concentrated on the first three products, and both theory and preliminary results are presented. Background information is presented on the experiment and on the data products. Preliminary examples of the types of analyses that can be performed and the conclusions to which they can lead are included. Preliminary analysis of the data for subsurface features was successful in indicating with a high probability the capability of the ALSE to achieve its fundamental goal of substrate sounding. The imagery and profiling data are useful immediately for geologic interpretation, as demonstrated.
