NVM-2 will synthesize the revolution in our understanding of the Moon since the beginning of the 21st century, given the international interest in and number of missions flown to our nearest celestial neighbor. Each chapter will, therefore, integrate and synthesize a lot of data, so writing teams for each chapter are being built.
The current plan is to publish this volume as a RiM-G volume (Reviews in Mineralogy and Geochemistry, published jointly by the Mineralogical Society of America and the Geochemical Society) as was done with the first New Views book (RiM-G Vol. 60) published in 2006. We are currently working through the Planetary Materials Interest Group of the MSA to make a formal proposal and get the book into the RiM-G queue.
The emphasis of the chapters in NVM-2 is on lunar science and exploration through integration and synthesis of multiple datasets. The chapters are not intended to be technique or mission specific.
