The results are presented of the first investigation of linear and nonlinear processes associated with waves which are related to the presence of magnetic fields in dusty plasmas at the Moon. Excitation of lower-hybrid turbulence in dusty plasmas near the lunar surface is studied. It is shown that the lower-hybrid turbulence can be generated wherever the Earth's magnetotail interacts with the near-surface dusty plasmas at the Moon. The electric fields appearing as a consequence of the presence of lower-hybrid turbulence are estimated. They can make a significant contribution to the total electric field above the lunar surface which should be taken into account in the future experimental investigation of electric fields at the Moon.
