What are the banding or ribs that show up on close detail photographs of the Moon?


Recently came across an article with close up shots of the moon and and took a few image captures that clearly show ribs or bands on the moon, anybody have any idea of what these are? I added three arrows at the top left hand side of this photo to indicate what I'm talking about. This banding seems to be in regular intervals with shadows on the upper side and are in fact quite large in comparison to the craters. Since we know it isn't man made who made them and what purpose do they serve.
