Noble gas exposure ages of samples from Cone and North Ray craters: Implications for the recent lunar cratering chronology

Abstract : Cosmic ray exposure (CRE) ages of rocks that were ejected by the impacts that created Cone and North Ray craters provide two crucial calibration points at <100 Ma for the lunar cratering chronology function, which relates the crater density of geological units on the Moon to their absolute age. To reassess the formation ages of these two craters, we determine here the accumulated abundances of 'cosmogenic' noble gas nuclides (3 He cosm , 21 Ne cosm , 38 Ar cosm), as well as the corresponding CRE ages, in six Apollo 14 rocks (i.e., one breccia and five basalts) and two Apollo 16 anorthosites that were collected near the rims of Cone and North Ray craters, respectively.
