its inauguration in 1963, the Arecibo Observatory in Puerto Rico has played an
invaluable role in planetary science and the exploration of our Solar
System. In the past few decades, Arecibo’s detection and characterization of
over 800 near-Earth asteroids has provided tremendous value for planetary
defense. In this Focus Issue of the AAS’ Planetary Science Journal,
we invite papers presenting recent planetary science results that make use
of data from the Arecibo Observatory, including characterization of
planetary surfaces and small solar system bodies, as well as exoplanetary
science enabled by the Arecibo Observatory. Review papers and historical
papers for this Focus Issue will be accepted by invitation only.
