Planetary and Space Sciences (PSS) Special Issue Invitation: Dust, Atmosphere, and Plasma Environment of the Moon and Small Bodies

The DAP – 2017 workshop was held in Boulder on January 11th-13th. It was focused on open science questions, the status and future of our supporting modeling and laboratory experimental capabilities, and the definition of the required measurements and instrument capabilities for future investigations from orbit or landed missions.

The workshop was hosted by M. Horányi and A. Stern, and supported by NASA’s Solar System Exploration Research Virtual Institute (SSERVI): Institute for Modeling Plasma, Atmospheres, and Cosmic Dust (IMPACT), the Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics (LASP), and the Center for Integrated Plasma Studies (CIPS) of the University of Colorado .

The DAP-2017 presentations are available online.

Contributions to the earlier LDAP-2010 and DAP-2012 meetings were published in special issues of Planetary and Space Sciences.

A similar volume is planned to report the contributions to DAP-2017. In addition to the meeting participants, the editors are soliciting contributed papers from the larger lunar, planetary, and space science communities that are relevant to the topics discussed during the DAP-2017 meeting.  

The Special Issue in Planetary and Space Sciences (PSS) has been formally approved. Online access in Planetary and Space Sciences will open April 1, and the deadline for submitting a paper to this special issue is June 30, 2017.
