Mineralogical Characterization of Lunar Highland SoilsTen pristine highland soils were selected for this study from Apollo 14 and 16 collections. These soils were chosen for their contrasting maturities, as reflected in their Is/FeO values [6]. For each soil, the 44- 20, 20-10, and < 10 m size fractions were obtained by wet sieving, with triply distilled water [7]. As outlined in Taylor et al. [2], each soil was split into appropriate sizes and distributed to LSCC members. The Tennessee team has characterized these soil size fractions both chemically and mineralogically, with detailed modal and phase compositional analyses, using techniques described previously by our group [8]. The results of the bulk chemistry of each size fraction of the highland soils was presented earlier.
