Outer Planets Assessment Group (OPAG) Town Hall
EPSC-DPS Joint Meeting 2019
September 20, 1:30–3:00
Moon (Room 15) ( SMW1.12)
Centre International de Conférences de Genève (CICG), Geneva, Switzerland

The purpose of the Outer Planets Assessment Group (OPAG) Town Hall is to update the community on OPAG activities and get community input for upcoming activities, especially as they pertain to the run up for the next Decadal Survey.

August 19, 2019 OPAG Subsurface Needs for Ocean Worlds Meeting #1
University of Colorado's Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics (LASP)
Boulder, CO
Agenda

Accessing into and through the ice shells of ocean worlds will both enable compelling science, including the search for evidence of past and present life, and require dedicated technology programs to realize.  OPAG invites members of the astrobiology, planetary science, ocean science and technology communities to join together in a community-based forum aimed at defining the path to the ocean(s).

The first Subsurface Needs for Ocean Worlds meeting will be held 9am-5pm August 20, 2019, immediately prior to the fall OPAG meeting in Boulder, CO.  This 1-day workshop is designed to be an open forum to discuss technology needs, common science drivers, and mission architectures for Ocean Worlds exploration.  The agenda will include a mixture of short presentations, break out groups, and lighting talks on technology and science. 

SNOW meeting #1 will seek to develop plans for Decadal Survey white paper(s) and define action items and agenda for the next meeting (prior to the winter/spring OPAG meeting).

Early career scientists are encouraged to participate.  For those who receive support for the OPAG meeting, costs to extend the trip to attend SNOW can also be supported.

The SNOW group is now working to gather information for writing a letter for the planetary decadal to support tech development for accessing Ocean Worlds. We welcome those interested to contribute to check out the information on the google drive here: and provide contact information here or directly to Kate Craft (Kate.Craft@jhuapl.edu).”

For any questions, please email Britney Schmidt (britneys@eas.gatech.edu) and/or Kate Craft (Kate.craft@jhuapl.edu)
