It is essential to differentiate the lunar crater from the meteorite impact on the moon. Microwave sensors reveal a number of distict features on varying terrains. MiniSAR data makes it easy to view several of such unique features over the lunar surface both in the illuminated and the shadowed regions.
The identification of such features can help to fur-ther understand the geological activity taking place resulting in the formation of such features as well as explain the physics behind the process of impact cra-tering and the subsequent formation of other second-ary structures. Further the results obtained can be cor-related and compared with similar features seen on terrestrial surfaces.

Are you suggesting that some of the craters are of other types of origin, but are being confused with true impact craters by lunar researchers?
