LPI Contributions

 

To document the activities of the visiting and staff scientists and other work supported by the Lunar and Planetary Institute, this formal series, called Lunar and Planetary Institute Contributions, was initiated in September 1969 while the Institute was under the auspices of the National Academy of Sciences. The Lunar and Planetary Institute Contribution series continues today, documenting the scientific research, meeting-related publications, educational materials, outreach products, and other activities of the Institute.
