The stratigraphic architecture of the lunar subsurface is the result of a complex and long process of emplacement and modification of the deposited materials. Such architecture can be inferred from remote sensing observations (2) or can be directly imaged using geophysical techniques like seismic or electromagnetic wave prospections (3).
