By Cesare Barbieri (auth.), Cesare Barbieri, Francesca Rampazzi (eds.)

Sediments and sedimentary procedures at the Moon and Earth are very diversified. within the absence of water, an environment, the magnetosphere, and lots more and plenty much less oxygen in its rocks, the Moon has neither clay minerals nor carbonates, and no Fe3+. Mechanical weathering by way of affects is the crucial means of sediment new release at the Moon; on the earth, chemical weathering predominates. while approaches of sediment shipping are mostly ballistic at the Moon, stream by means of air, water and ice be triumphant in the world. the unconventional variations among Earth and Moon sediments cause them to precious end-members among which all sediments of all terrestrial planetary our bodies are anticipated to lie. the aim of this paper is (l) to match and distinction significant features of the foundation, transportation, deposition, and renovation of sediments, in particular dirt, within the Earth and the Moon, and (2) to indicate how sediments of alternative rocky planetary our bodies, specifically Mars, may match in-between the sediments of the Earth and the Moon.

Any investigation into finding evidence of life in other planetary bodies must be guided by the nature of sediments, which should be as earth-like as possible and as different from lunar sediments as possible. 3. Sediments Sediment may be defined as the material that is deposited at the surface of a planetary body by physical, chemical, or biological agents (cf. Press and Siever, 1994, p. 570). Characteristics of sediments are functions of the processes of their production, transportation, and deposition.
