BRIEF DESCRIPTION
75.2_S_134.8_W
Zeeman is Ridge Section 161, named after a 184 km-wide lunar impact crater located on the lunar Far Side near the south pole. To the northwest of Zeeman lies the crater Numerov (out of frame). Southeast of the rim is the crater Ashbrook. The outer rim of Zeeman is eroded somewhat irregularly, with considerable variation in width of the inner slopes. The crater Zeeman Y lies across the northern wall, reaching almost to the relatively flat interior floor. In the western rim is a small crater that joins a gash that runs down to the floor. The surface of the interior is pock-marked by many tiny craterlets, and worn crater features. There is a low central rise, offset to the southeast of the interior midpoint. There seems to be quite a bit of interest in the region attested by the web page articles at the bottom of this directory. However, none of these have beeen evaluated and we have no comments from our team at this point. (Credit: Most of the information used in the section feature descriptions was obtained from wikipedia.org. Section 161 and this directory was created by Fran Ridge and Ned Haskin of The Lunascan Project).
