Welcome to the EPOXI Mission Data Review

Introduction to the PDS SBN and the review process

The PDS Small Bodies Node is a discipline node of the Planetary Data System (PDS) charged with archiving data concerning comets, asteroids and interplanetary dust. The PDS archive is a "deep archive," intended to contain sufficient documentation and ancillary data for future scientists to interpret and use the data long after the original scientists or teams are no longer available to help. It is also intended to provide useful data to researchers in a convenient way at the present time. In reviewing the data you should keep in mind these two complementary goals of preserving the data in a way useable to future generations and making the data easily accessible to current researchers.

How to review the data

The review period will be from 6 July 2009 through 22 July 2009, and the review meeting will be held on 23 July 2009 in the Computer and Space Sciences building of the University of Maryland, College Park, MD. (Here's the agenda.) Please allow yourself enough time to do a thorough review of the data sets.

All reviewers should review these summary review instructions. Reviewers who are new to PDS and/or SBN reviews should consult the various links and resources in this collection of Information for Data Reviewers.

The Review Meeting
