The Apollo 17 Lunar Sounder.The Apollo Lunar Sounder Experiment (ALSE) was a three-frequency wide-band coherent radar system operated from lunar orbit during the Apollo 17 mission. The scientific objectives of the experiment include the mapping of subsurface structure, surface profiling, surface imaging, and galactic noise measurement. Examples of subsurface reflections are discussed, giving attention to VHF sounding, HF2 sounding, and HF1 sounding. Examples of imagery and profiles are also considered, taking into account various craters and profile high points.
