Workshop: The Future of Network Science on Mars

Organizers: G. Delory (CIPS, USA), B. Banerdt (JPL, USA), P. Lognonné (IPGP, France)


Meeting Goal:

In 2005, NASA is expected to release an AO calling for two Scout missions to be launch in 2011. The goal of this meeting is to review the scientific objectives of a Mars network mission, to identify the members of the U.S. and international community interested in network science, and create a consensus on the optimum scientific payload. The meeting will consist of several sessions devoted to some of the key aspects of network science on Mars.

CIPS Reading Seminar: EPS 290
Classic Papers in Earth and Planetary Science

Led by Raymond Jeanloz with assistance from EPS/ CIPS faculty

Dept. of Earth & Planetary Science, UC Berkeley

The papers for this seminar were chosen for deagogical effectiveness, validity, and breadth. Seven papers will be discussed, with input and perspective from local experts, and with updates from more modern studies by graduate students. We hope that the astronomers in the audience will benefit from being exposed to concepts with wide applicability to all of planetary science. Topics include: order-of-magnitude scaling argument, radioactive dating of meteorites and the age of the solar system, seismic inferences of planetary interiors, plate tectonics, and chaotic fluid flow.
