Mare Fecunditatis

Mare Fecunditatis (the "sea of fecundity") is a lunar mare 909 miles in diameter. The Fecuditatis basin formed in the Pre-Nectarian[?] epoch, while the basin material surrounding the mare is of the Nectarian[?] epoch. The mare matierial is of the Upper Imbrian[?] epoch and is relatively thin compared to Mare Crisium or Mare Tranquillitatis. This basin is overlapped with the Nectaris, Tranquillitatis, and Crisium basins. Fecunditatis basin meets Nectaris basin along Fecunditatis' western edge, with the area along this zone faulted by arcuated grabens[?]. On the eastern edge of Fecunditatis is the crater Langrenus[?].
