Abstract
Surface maturity estimation of the lunar regolith revealed selenological process behind the formation of lunar surface, which might be provided vital information regarding the geological evolution of earth, because lunar surface is being considered as 8-9 times older than as that of the earth. Spectral reflectances data from Moon mineralogy mapper (M3), the hyperspectral sensor of chandrayan-1 coupled with the standard weight percentages of FeO from lunar returned samples of Apollo and Luna landing sites, through data interpolation techniques to generate the weight percentage FeO map of the target lunar locations. With the interpolated data mineral maps were prepared and the results are analyzed.
