  1. As always, Howard, excellent results- these new data look superior for certain locations – the July issue, Icarus ((http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0019103515003450)), have a somewhat-related article. When I saw Komarov title, it set off a farside response.

    Btw, will be in contact with you shortly about new farside craters’ book…need your address etc.

  2. Cheers, Howard…pm (address) received. Will have to look into downloading the new data-set – problem is I’m located in a remote area where the broadband download is pathetically slow. Fingers crossed (X).
