Concerning strictly to astronomic topics he founded the Geologic Lunar Research (GLR) group, association involved in lunar geology and study of lunar domes and their classification. GLR group has produced dozens of published studies of lunar domes, faults and transient phenomena, including a novel classification scheme based on studies carried out during several years (see list below), some of which published in professional Journals (Icarus, PSS). The lunar studies carried out by our group allows to understand the physical conditions and processes of lunar dome eruptions.
