A review article about the interaction of water exospheres with the surfaces of the Moon, Mercury, and Ceres is now published. The authors include members from six SSERVI teams (TREX, LEADER, REVEALS, ICE FIVE-O, GEODES, VORTICES) as well as international colleagues. An armada of spacecraft will be headed to the Moon over the next five years to search for water, so this is a timely subject.

Summer and winter peak temperatures (and therefore cold traps) in the south polar region of the Moon
