Abstract

A series of measurements of infra-red apparent temperatures of ten selected sites in lunar maria has been undertaken in CERGA, using an infra-red receiver (11.3 μm). The experimental procedures are described. The theory of the receiver is developed and the theory of two methods of calibration of the measurements is given. This method was applied during two campaigns in 1977 and 1978, giving 142 values of temperatures.
