Dorsum Buckland is a large wrinkle ridge at 20°24′N 12°48′E / 20.4°N 12.8°E / 20.4; 12.8 in Mare Serenitatis on the Moon, 380 km long. It is named after William Buckland.

Dorsum Buckland's ridges are 200 to 300 meters high and were formed by compressional stresses near the center of the basin, possibly over buried basin structures.[1]
