Description

These data are our original measured resistivity data and calculation data. Our data show that small amounts of phosphorus (~3 wt%) in the lunar core have no significant impact on the core’s thermal conductivity. Also, the model result implies that a thermal-driven lunar dynamo perhaps ended before 3.63-3.88 Ga ago.
