1 ESA Planetary Science Data Workshop Venus Express: SPICAV SOIR Mars Express: PFS ESAC, Villanueva de Canada, Madrid, Spain 27/06/2011 to 01/07/2011 Dave Heather Olivier Witasse, Hakan Svedhem

2 ESA MEX VEX Data Workshop | 06/2011 | Slide 2 Welcome! Welcome to ESAC! Centre of science operations and data archiving

3 ESA MEX VEX Data Workshop | 06/2011 | Slide 3 Introductions ESA Support Team: Dave Heather (Science Archives Coordinator) Olivier Witasse (MEX Project Scientist) Hakan Svedhem (VEX Project Scientist) Alejandro Cardesin, Nicolas Manaud (Mars Express support) Maud Barthelemy, Miguel Perez (Venus Express support) Jose Luis Vazquez (PSA support) Carlos Rios (SAT support) Asun Casado / Patrick Martin (Local organisation) Instrument Team support! SPICAV-SOIR science team PFS science team

4 ESA MEX VEX Data Workshop | 06/2011 | Slide 4 Why a Joint Mars / Venus Express data workshop? Mars Express in orbit since December 2003 Venus Express in orbit since April 2006 The scientific community active in Venus research is small compared to that of other planets but is growing fast as more data from Venus Express becomes available. The ESA Planetary Science Archive contains more and more data from all missions This w/s is the first for Venus Express and will address the data from the SOIR instrument. Similar workshops dealing with data from the other instruments will follow later this year and next year

5 ESA MEX VEX Data Workshop | 06/2011 | Slide 5 Workshop objectives Goals: To inform how to access the data To explain how to use, process, and analyse the data To create some links between experiment teams and users First step for using the data in your own research To increase the scientific output of the missions!

6 ESA MEX VEX Data Workshop | 06/2011 | Slide 6 Attention The data available in the archive are free to use… BUT It is strongly recommended to contact the experiment team in case of presentations and/or publications Acknowledge the archive (PSA) Cite the data set! Mention Venus Express or Mars Express in titles and abstracts!

10 ESA MEX VEX Data Workshop | 06/2011 | Slide 10 Content of the workshop Tutorials Demos Hands-on Discussions Workshop style: really flexible, ask questions! Summary of the workshop to be sent before the end of July Questionnaire to be completed by the participants

11 ESA MEX VEX Data Workshop | 06/2011 | Slide 11 Venus Express Science Objectives The overall aim of the mission is to carry out a comprehensive study of the atmosphere of Venus and to study in some detail the plasma environment and a number of aspects of the surface of the planet.

12 ESA MEX VEX Data Workshop | 06/2011 | Slide 12 VEX Science Themes Atmospheric Dynamics –Global Dynamics mechanisms, Super-rotation, Double Polar Vortex Atmospheric Structure –Density and Temperature in three dimensions Atmospheric Composition and Chemistry –Processes and species in the different regions Cloud Layer and Hazes –Behaviour and characteristics, UV absorber Radiative Balance and Greenhouse effect –Global thermal balance, Greenhouse in past, present and future Surface Properties and Geology –Volcanic and seismic activity, highly radar reflective areas Plasma Environment and Escape processes –Evolution of the atmosphere, water, escape history

13 ESA MEX VEX Data Workshop | 06/2011 | Slide 13 Science Payload

14 ESA MEX VEX Data Workshop | 06/2011 | Slide 14 SPICAV-SOIR Overview of the experiment Available data in the archive Explanations on how to derive higher-level data Examples of higher-level data usage Use of software

15 ESA MEX VEX Data Workshop | 06/2011 | Slide 15 Mars Express Science Objectives The mission's main objective is to search for sub-surface water from orbit and utilise a series of remote sensing experiments to shed new light on the Martian atmosphere, the planet's structure, geology and composition.

16 ESA MEX VEX Data Workshop | 06/2011 | Slide 16 MEX Science Themes Global high-resolution photogeology Super-resolution photogeology of selected areas of the planet Global high spatial resolution mineralogical mapping of the Martian surface Global atmospheric circulation characterisation, and high-resolution mapping of the atmospheric composition Subsurface structure characterisation down to the permafrost Surface-atmosphere interaction; interaction of the atmosphere with the interplanetary medium Structure of the interior, atmosphere and environment via radio science measurements Surface geochemistry and exobiology
