Call for Papers: Focus Issue on Arecibo’s Planetary Science in AAS’ Planetary Science Journal

Since 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.

Submission Deadline: August 06, 2021
Focus Issue Editor: Edgard G. Rivera-Valentín
