  • Fortezzo, C. M.; Spudis, Paul D.; Harrel, S. L. (USGS, 2020)
    This new work represents a seamless, globally consistent, 1:5,000,000-scale geologic map derived from the six digitally renovated geologic maps. The goal of this project was to create a digital resource for science research ...
  • Desch, Steven J.; Robinson, Katharine L.; https://orcid.org/0000-0003-4750-724X (Elsevier, 2019-10-22)
    The Moon is thought to have formed after a planetary embryo, known as Theia, collided with the proto-Earth 4.5 billion years ago. This so-called Giant Impact was the last major event during Earth’s accretion, and its effects ...
  • Treiman, Allan H.; https://orcid.org/0000-0002-8073-2839; Herd, Christopher D. K.; https://orcid.org/0000-0001-5210-4002; Jones, John H.; Mittlefehldt, D. W. (Lunar and Planetary Institute, 2002)
    Geochemical and petrologic studies of the Martian meteorites (SNCs) have proliferated in the past few years, from new samples and new analytical methods. A result from these studies is that the chemical and isotopic ...
  • Kinsler, Danny C. (Lunar Science Institute, 1975-03)
    Background information of detailed photo base maps produced from orbital and surface experiments data derived from Apollo missions 15, 16, and 17 is presented in outline form.
  • Sargeant, H. M.; Bickel, Valentin Tertius; Honniball, Casey; Martinez, S. N.; Rogaski, A.; Bell, S. K.; Czaplinski, E. C.; Farrant, B. E.; Harrington, E. M.; Tolometti, G. D.; Kring, David A. (David Allen) (American Geophysical Union, 2020-01-23)
    The polar regions of the Moon contain areas that never experience sunlight, known as permanently shadowed regions (PSRs). These regions are thought to contain uneven distributions of water ice deposits. To access PSRs and ...
  • Lee, Seungyeol; https://orcid.org/0000-0002-0175-1389; Xu, Huifang (NDPI, 2020-01-31)
    Determination of the atomic-scale structures of certain fine-grained minerals using single-crystal X-ray diffraction (XRD) has been challenging because they commonly occur as submicron and nanocrystals in the geological ...
  • Treiman, Allan H.; https://orcid.org/0000-0002-8073-2839 (Lunar and Planetary Institute, 2009)
    The workshop has several objectives: to assess current knowledge of Venus’ geochemistry; to consider Earth-based investigations (laboratory and theoretical) that will enhance understanding of current data and enable future ...
  • Wood, Charles A.; Francis, Peter W. (Lunar and Planetary Institute, 1988)
    Observations of electrical noise and sulfur dioxide variations by the Pioneer Venus spacecraft have been interpreted as evidence for ongoing volcanic activity (Scarf and Russell, 1983; Esposito, 1984). Recently this ...
  • Balcerski, Jeff; Steffes, P. G. (Paul Gregory), 1955-; Arney, Giada Nicole (Lunar and Planetary Institute, 2017)
    The objectives of this workshop were to discuss (1) the status of modeling of Venus’ exosphere, atmosphere, surface, and interior; and (2) the factors that are currently limiting the ability of investigators to advance ...
  • Santos, Alison R.; Filiberto, Justin; https://orcid.org/0000-0001-5058-1905; Ganesh, Indujaa; Gilmore, Martha S.; Lewis, Jonathan A.; Treiman, Allan H.; https://orcid.org/0000-0002-8073-2839 (2020)
    We encourage the Decadal Panel to continue its emphasis on the surface of Venus as a spacecraft target and to promote the continued development of technologies that can collect petrologic data in Venus’ challenging environment.
  • Kremic, Tibor; Singh, Upendra N.; Baines, Kevin Hays; https://orcid.org/0000-0002-5544-9986 (Lunar and Planetary Institute, 2015)
    The objectives of this two-day workshop are to (1) present, discuss, and document the status of the instrument technologies and the definition of new instruments; and (2) present, discuss, and document the status and needs ...
  • Fegley, Bruce; Treiman, Allan H.; Sharpton, Virgil L. (Lunar and Planetary Institute, 1992)
    We utilize Earth-based, Earth-orbital, and spacecraft observations of the atmosphere and surface of Venus, thermodynamic models of atmosphere-lithosphere interactions, and where available kinetic data on relevant gas-solid ...
  • McGovern, Patrick J. (Geophysicist); https://orcid.org/0000-0001-9647-3096 (2020)
    Here I identify the next steps that would unleash the potential of the vast range of volcanic phenomena recorded at the surface of Venus to inform, or perhaps transform, studies of Venus’ evolution and the volcanic expressions ...
  • Binzel, Richard P.; Schenk, Paul M. (Lunar and Planetary Institute, 2014)
    The scope of this workshop, the first dedicated to Vesta as a planetary body, includes dynamics, impact mechanics and impactor flux, internal and surface composition, shape and internal structure, formation and geologic ...
  • Mouginis-Mark, Peter J. (Lunar and Planetary Institute, 1981)
    This slide set is intended to show that although Hawaiian volcanos are small when compared to those found on the other planets, we can learn a considerable amount about how the extraterrestrial features were formed. Through ...
  • Zimbelman, James R.; https://orcid.org/0000-0002-0420-8453 (Center for Information and Research Services/Lunar and Planetary Institute, 1987)
    Illustrates various geologic features on Mars, including some of the best examples of Viking Orbiter images that include constructional volcanic landforms.
  • Simonds, Charles H.; Phinney, William C.; McGee, Patricia E.; Cochran, Ann (Pergamon Press, 1978)
    A field study at the 30 km diameter West Clearwater impact crater was carried out during the summer of 1977 to identify the nature of the flow of impact melt and less shocked debris during the excavation stage of the ...
  • Simonds, Charles H.; Phinney, William C.; McGee, Patricia E.; Cochran, Ann (Pergamon Press, 1978)
    Impactites lining the base of the crater at West Clearwater Lake consist of a 0 to 20 m thickness of fragmental breccia overlain by about 18 m of clast-rich melt rock which in turn is overlain by at least 85 m of clast-poor ...
  • Bogard, Donald D.; Rutherford, Malcolm J.; Schmidt, Greg; Shearer, Charles K. (Lunar and Planetary Institute, 2011)
    The purpose of this workshop is to bring together members of the planetary science community to discuss and integrate mission observations, laboratory measurements, and theoretical models for the volatile behavior and ...
