Named in honor of Richard J. Greenberg {1947} , planetary scientist at the University of Arizona. Greenberg has carried out careful and innovative studies of the evolution of dynamical resonances in outer-planet satellite and ring systems. He has also contributed important new insights into collisional processes between minor planets and into the formation of resulting dust bands. (M 12803)
