Origin and Evolution of the Moon’s Procellarum KREEP Terrane

The Procellarum KREEP Terrane is a unique province on the Moon that produced extensive volcanism. Major volcanic features could be explored by a long-distance rover with a New Frontiers class mission to answer questions about how this planetary asymmetry formed, why volcanism was so voluminous, and how it persisted for nearly 4 billion years.
