Welcome to the PDS4/Comet Review

Review Meeting Date: 15 May 2018

University of Maryland, College Park MD

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

All reviewers should read the Minimum Required Feedback. Reviewers who are new to PDS should also consult How to Approach a PDS3 Data Set or PDS4 Data Set.

The review period will be from 20 Apr 2018 through 15 May 2018. Please allow yourself enough time to do a thorough review of the data sets.

The Review Meeting

The Comet Review period starts on 20 Apr 2018 and culminates in the review meeting held on 15 May 2018 at the University of Maryland, College Park. The review meeting will be held in the Atlantic Building (ATL, Bldg #224), Room 1250.

Meeting Documents:

For each data set, liens collected during the review as well as liens and corrections reported prior to the review are gathered into list(s). These final liens will be posted in the table below after the review.

Any notes and/or presentations should be sent to Ludmilla Kolokolova AND COPIED to Elizabeth Warner.
