About the Author

Raffaello Lena was born in Rome on September 1959. He received the Master degree in Pharmaceutical Sciences from the University of Rome “La Sapienza” in 1985 and the Doctorate degree in Pharmaceutical Sciences from the University of Rome “La Sapienza” in 1989 in the field of synthesis and pharmacological properties of new molecules. He currently works for the Italian Ministry of Health in Rome, Italy, on food safety. Concerning strictly to astronomic topics he founded the Geologic Lunar Research (GLR) group, association involved in lunar geology and study of lunar domes and their classification. GLR group has produced dozens of published studies of lunar domes, faults and transient phenomena, including a novel classification scheme based on studies carried out during several years (see list below), some of which published in professional Journals (Icarus, PSS). The lunar studies carried out by our group allows to understand the physical conditions and processes of lunar dome eruptions.


From the reviews:“In probably the first book ever focused on lunar domes, Lena (independent scholar) and colleagues review what is known about them and add new data. … descriptions will interest mainly lunar specialists and perhaps observers looking for viewing targets on the moon. … The authors have clearly studied lunar domes in great detail and assembled a wealth of data on them … . Summing Up: Recommended. Graduate students through professionals.” (B. M. Simonson, Choice, Vol. 51 (4), December, 2013)
