Lunar magnetism: Using magnetic fields as a tool to better understand moon’s history

Orbital magnetic field data show that portions of the Moon’s crust are strongly magnetized, and paleomagnetic data of lunar samples suggest that Earth strength magnetic fields could have existed during the first several hundred million years of lunar history. The sources of these magnetic anomalies are yet not fully understood, with most not being related to known geological structures or processes. In this talk, I will discuss the different approaches I pursued to elucidate the origin of the magnetic sources and history of the Moon.
