Volcanic activity on the Moon may have started 4.2 trillion years ago. Scientists estimate that volcanic eruptions may have been on the moon till 1 billion years ago. The large spots visible on its surface are plains of volcanic rocks which have been formed due to large volcanic eruptions. Scientists are trying to understand whether these explosions would have released gases, which would have been captured in its atmosphere? And would these gases cool down and fall again in the form of ice on the surface of Mars, where sunlight does not reach.
Scientists have said that this could be a possibility. “Our model predicts that 41 percent of the total H20 mass may have re-condensed as ice at its poles. It may have been hundreds of meters thick.” Scientists have published this study in Planetary Science General.
Scientists have said that the period of volcanic events on the moon must have been very short. Here, water in the form of ice would have been present at every altitude, which would have formed on the poles.
Researchers have prepared this study on the hypothesis that all the water vapor particles created by volcanic activity may not have been lost due to solar winds. Some of them may have accumulated on the surface in the form of frost. And in this way water would have been available on the moon.
