This data set includes all of the measured and calculated data to supplement the paper "Using Boulder Tracks as a Tool to Understand the Bearing Capacity of Permanently Shadowed Regions of the Moon."

Included are the boulder and track measurements, context of each location, and calculated bearing capacities. Also included is the evaluation and calculation of the 'effective incidence angle' used to calculate bearing capacity in shadowed regions.


This work was conducted with the support of the Lunar and Planetary Institute (LPI) in Houston, TX, and the Universities Space Research Association. Funding was provided by the NASA Solar System Exploration Research Virtual Institute (NNXA14AB07A, PI David A. Kring).
