Artem

Artem, city (1989 pop. 69,000), Maritime Territory (Primorsky Kray), Russian Far East. It is a coal-mining center and has an important thermoelectric station that utilizes local coal deposits.
Artem'ev is a lunar crater that is located on the far side of the Moon. The rim of this crater has been modified by subsequent impacts in the vicinity, with an inward bulge along the southwest edge and a worn impact laying across the north rim. The satellite crater Artem'ev G is partly overlain by the southeast rim of Artem'ev. The crater interior is relatively flat, and marked only by tiny craterlets.

The crater Tsander lies to the southwest of Artem'ev. Further to the southeast is the huge walled basin Hertzprung.

Satellite craters

By convention these features are identified on lunar maps by placing the letter on the side of the crater mid-point that is closest to Artem'ev.
