Our yearly summer school focuses on the topic of "Using Satellite Observations to Advance Climate Models". Students will explore how satellite observations can be used to evaluate and improve climate models, and will hear from a range of speakers on climate model diagnostics and evaluation and remote sensing of the planet.
The goal of the workshop is to establish consensus around the needs and challenges associated with “Continuity”, including: considering the needs for climate science, mitigation, adaptation, and identifying technical, programmatic, and observing architecture design challenges.
In this talk, Erik Conway will trace the evolution of several Mars sample return efforts, showing how technologies intended for sample return campaigns wound up being used for other missions.
This workshop will examine non-destructive instrumentation to detect biosignatures and sampling techniques to collect and preserve microhabitats while retaining the spatial context.
This workshop will identify the mission lifecycle changes required to explore an ISO and LPC and will dive deeper into “rapid response”, develop strategies and identify technologies to enable the up-close exploration of the next ISO or LPC discovered.
This workshop will unite experts in small bodies science, relevant instruments, ISO and LPC design, and mission implementation to tackle some of the most challenging aspects of developing and executing a mission to an LPC, ISO, or NEO.
