Gornitz, V., 1974: Correlation between region of enhanced mare flooding on the lunar farside and Apollo orbital results. Moon, 9, 323-325.

The most obvious difference between near and farsides of the Moon, as revealed by the Lunar Orbiter photography, is the prevalence of rugged, heavily cratered highland terrain and almost total absence of maria on the hidden face. A few exceptional marefilled craters or basins are found, such as Tsiolkovsky, J. Verne, Lomonosov and Mare Moscoviense. However, a region on the lunar tarside does exist, where mare-type flooding is more widespread than elsewhere. This region occurs at about 180° longitude, from 20° to 60° S. Areas covered, or partly covered with mare material include Aitken, Van de Graaff, Mare Ingenii, Leibnitz, Von Kirman, Apollo and some craters near Poincaré.
