rilles are probably the most recognizable of small volcanic features on
the Moon. Many partially resemble river valleys on the Earth. However,
the lunar rilles usually flow away from small pit structures. Also, the
lunar samples indicate that the Moon has always been bone dry. Thus, the
sinuous rilles probably mark lava channels or collapsed lava tubes that formed during mare volcanism.
