- What are the Solar Wind Volatiles (SWV's)?
- What are the SWV's good for?
- What is the state of the SWV's on the Moon?
- At what temperature are the SWV's evolved from lunar regolith?
The Solar Wind Volatiles fall into 2 general classes (Lunar Sourcebook, Cambridge, 1991):
1) Biogenic elements (H, C, O and N)
2) Noble gases (He, Ne, Ar, Kr, and Xe)
