The interaction of water vapor with a lunar soil, a compacted soil, and a cinder-like rock fragment.
A volumetric adsorption system incorporating a pressure gauge was employed to determine nitrogen adsorption and evaluate surface areas. The water adsorption of the lunar samples was measured with the aid of a gravimetric adsorption system including a microbalance. The results obtained in the investigation for the three samples are discussed in detail, giving attention to aspects of dehydroxylation and re-hydroxylation.
