Article first published online: 8 MAR 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/jgre.20056

Key Points

  • We investigate viscoelastic deformation of major lunar impact basins
  • Constraints on the early thermal state vary greatly among geological provinces
  • The thick lunar farside crust needs to be depleted in radioactive elements
