MESSENGER Geology Discipline Group31 July 2004 (agenda topics per Jim Head)

  • a) lunar calibration issues and sequence.

    • L. Prockter will describe Aug. 1; vital opportunity for MDIS; power?

  • b) coordination of MDIS observations with VIRS.

    • Vital synergy; discussions Aug. 1 and during future telecon

  • c) coordination of science analysis with other instruments.

    • Understanding surface composition requires advanced coordination

    • MDIS, VIRS, GRNS, XRS

  • d) Venus flyby science.

    • 1st flyby is near solar conjunction so only MDIS can work (flat-field, no science)

    • Little understanding so far about 2nd flyby, but lots of time to plan

MESSENGER Geology Discipline Group Report (1 Aug. 2004), continued

  • e) Mercury encounter planning, coordination and analysis.

    • Strawman encounter sequences already exist

    • Science input for optimization desired ~1 year before encounter

  • f) Mercury orbit planning, coordination and analysis.

    • Farther downstream

  • g) preparatory science analyses.

    • Science team should spend time working with calibration data

    • Researchers should re-familiarize themselves with Mariner 10 data and topical Mercury science issues

  • h) science topics for future GDG telecons.

    • Leftover topics from last (cancelled) telecon
