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 befrom Dec 2023 through 22 Jan 2024. Please allow yourself enough time to do a thorough review of the data sets.
