Lunar crustal magnetic field map, 65S to 65N



Lunar crustal magnetic field map in nanoTeslas at 30 km altitude above the mean lunar radius (1737.4 km) produced from Lunar Prospector and Kaguya magnetometer data. The map has a spacing of 0.5 degrees in latitude by 2/3 degrees in longitude. It has been smoothed two-dimensionally using a moving average (boxcar) filter with an effective resolution of approximately 1 2/3 degrees in latitude by 3 1/3 degrees in longitude. For a detailed description, see Hood et al., Journal of Geophysical Research Planets, in review, 2020. Zero values indicate no reliable data.
