POTENTIAL AREAS OF RESEARCH

Typical projects in past years have included studies in formation of the planets and the solar system, lunar resource utilization, interplanetary dust particles and lunar sample characterization, meteorites and their origins, properties of planetary regoliths and atmospheres, planetary volcanism, geophysical data analysis and modeling, geochemistry, petrology, experimental petrology, processing of remote sensing data and images, photogeology, stratigraphy and geological mapping, tectonics and tectonic processes, impact cratering, spectroscopic observations of planetary
surfaces, and astrobiology. Each project will be directed by an LPI or JSC scientist.
