Thermal in Situ Measurements in the Lunar Regolith Using the LUNAR-A Penetrators: An Outline of Data Reduction Methods
For determining the lunar heat flow two parameters need to be measured: The thermal gradient and the thermal conductivity of the regolith. Methods for inferring these quantities from in situ measurements using the LUNAR-A penetrators will be presented.
