This region is geologically complex, featuring sinuous rilles, mare volcanism, highland mountain ranges, and of course impact craters. Rima Bradley is a northeast/southwest-trending linear rille located between Mare Imbrium and Palus Putredinis (very close to the Apollo 15 landing site). Rima Bradley probably formed as a result of tectonic stresses in the Imbrium basin. LROC WAC monochrome mosaic, illumination from left [NASA/GSFC/Arizona State University].
