A new Earth-based Lunar Radar map has been released on the PDS Geosciences Node web site at http://pds-geosciences.wustl.edu/missions/sband/index.htm. This data set contains dual-polarization backscatter maps of the lunar nearside collected at a wavelength of 12.6 cm (S-band), using the 305 m Radio Telescope at Arecibo to transmit and the NRAO's 105 m Robert C. Byrd Green Bank Telescope to receive. The data were provided by Bruce Campbell of the Smithsonian Institution's Center for Earth and Planetary Studies and archived by the PDS Geosciences Node.
