An article about Reflection imaging of the Moon's interior using deep-moonquake seismic interferometry

18 July 2016

The internal structure of the Moon has been investigated over many years using a variety of seismic methods. In this article we propose to apply body-wave seismic interferometry to deep moonquakes in order to retrieve zero-offset reflection responses (and thus images) beneath the Apollo stations on the nearside of the Moon.
