General Assembly Tuesday 25 September Madrid EC Grant agreement n°
Project overview EC Grant agreement n° Tuesday 25 September 2012 – Madrid Michel Blanc, IRAP-CNRS, Toulouse
Concept Europlanet RI is a full « Infrastructure network » supporting and enhancing our use of space missions, earth-based telescopes, simulation and data analysis tools, lab and field site facilities The main objective is to provide services and tools to the community! Access to lab facilities, field sites, extreterrestrial matter samples repositories Access to all information sources via a web interface (IDIS) to evolve into a « Virtual Planetary Observatory » Done by a combination of 3 types of activities Networking activities (science communication activities within the lab network and with the outside world) Trans National Access (TNA) and Service Activities (SA) Joint Research Activities (JRA): research and development activities aiming at IMPROVING the use and scientific return of our Research infrastructures in planetary sciences 3
Key figures 4 year project EU funding: € 27 consortium members 47 laboratories 231 persons 16 countries Many more associate contributors (61 institutes) and users A service to the European planetary science community, and beyond! 4

Presentation of work by Activity EC Grant agreement n° Tuesday 25 September 2012 – Madrid Philippe Louarn, IRAP-CNRS, Toulouse
4 years of activity… from ~250 persons, in ~50 labs, funded by ~30 institutes/agencies, in ~16 countries ! 8 Europlanet FP7 Research Infrastructure Service Activities Integrated and Distributed Information Service (IDIS) Data archiving and analysis tools JRA3: Modelling and data analysis tools JRA4: towards v irtual observatory in planetary sciences Networking Workshop Conference(EPSC) Outreach Research activity (JRA1) Development for Supporting Planetary Missions. Link with amateurs Trans National Access Pan-european access to national facilities/labs. TNA1 Planetary Field Analogues TNA2 Planetary Simulation Facilities TNA3 Planetary Sample Analysis JRA2: Characterization of new field analogues
NETWORKING 1) More than 30 workshops/conferences (H.Rucker, A.M.Arri, S.Miller, M.Grande, R.Srama, K.Szego, N.krupp…) 4 EPSC (>4000 attendants ) ; 4 ISSI workshops/Forum ( and books!), Technology/Industry workshops, 2) Ambitious new approach of Outreach in Europe (T. Fouchet, J.P.Lebreton, A.) (T. Fouchet, J.P.Lebreton, A. Heward, E. Chatzichristou ) 15 national nodes, large list of experts who are able to comment on ‘planetary stories’, in the various european languages… Several communication ‘training’ Workshops Annual ‘outreach’ price. 3) Links with the amateur community (W. Thuillot, J.Oberst) - Meteor observing campaigns involving students and amateur astronomers, - SPOSH camera : meteoroid impact flash observations on Moon.
Goal: provide access to a comprehensive set of laboratory facilities and field sites tailored to the needs of planetary research o TNA1: Planetary Field Analogues to perform research for space missions under realistic planetary conditions o TNA2 Planetary Simulation Facilities providing access to laboratory facilities that simulate conditions in planetary atmospheres and surfaces o TNA3 Planetary Sample Analysis Planetary Sample Analysis to analyze meteoritic and sample returns with specific isotopic analysis TNA MORE than 80 VISITS SUPPORTED (N.Mason, F.Gomez, G.Davies, C.Cloquet) 10 TRANS NATIONAL ACCESS
11 TNA1 F.Gomez, O.Roste (IKI) SIX WELL CHARACTERIZED TERRESTRIAL NATURAL FIELD SITES Analogues of surface of Mars, Europa, Titan Analogues of surface of Mars, Europa, Titan Desert, permafrost, acidic environment, hydrothermal sources Morocco, Tunisia, Svalbard, Spain, Kamchatka, Popigai Crater in Siberia LIFE IN EXTREME CONDITIONS Learning more about the survival strategies that life adopts in extreme environments Ny Alesund Spitzberg Kamchatka, Russia Ibn Battuta Centre Morocco Rio Tinto, Spain
Laboratory studies Emissivity Infrared emissivity spectra of mineral mixtures explored at different temperatures to compare with observations of the Martian moon, Phobos. The results are providing new insights into the mineralogy of this moon which has been proposed as the first candidate for extra terrestrial mining ! 12 Highlight from TNA2
Title : Water in nominally anhydrous chondrites 4 days in Nancy Ion Probe Cameca Highlight from TNA3 Laser ablation spot Ion probe spot Do CK and CV chondrites have a closely related origin? and mineralogy similar => Yes but redox conditions ≠ and fluids into CV not CK => No. CK oxidized CV reduced CV Data actually in treatment, publication in preparation.

IDIS Service Activity is aimed at providing: easy access to data produced in the different fields of planetary research: space missions, ground based telescopes, laboratory and field facilities, sample collections, and modelling results tools to visualize, analyze, manipulate and interpret all types of observational, computational, and laboratory data M.T.Capria, G. Chanteur, many groups: VO paris, CDPP Toulouse, DLR, Technical Node W.Schmitt …. 14 IDIS Service Activity Goals Services are progressively implemented, and a prototype of a restricted Planetary VO is already available.
JRA-1 have developed various planetary map products for delivery to SA-IDIS: Topographic models from HRSC on Mars Express, notably for the MSL landing site Maps of Saturn satellites / Cassini data Phobos shape models and maps Mercury terrain models from Mariner-10 and MESSENGER data Have developed various planetary and spacecraft ephemerides; have implemented client/server architecture for data access 16 Surface Node/JRA1 Planetary Dynamics, Geodesy, Cartography (W. Thuillot, J.Oberst) Lunar Orientale Basin / Scholten et al., 2012
Highlight from Small Bodies and Dust Node (Rosetta…) 17 Comet emission lines service The service allows the user, by means of a simple query interface, to visualize a table of peak wavelength, blending details, species (when identified), transition, (when identified), intensity (in arbitrary units, when measured), equivalent width (when measured) and distance of observation of the whole set of emission lines collected from four catalogs. All of these catalogs have been derived from spectra obtained with Echelle spectrography. Emission lines grouping Within the starting catalogs, many lines are not identified. We established a statistical method to recognize groups of unidentified lines. Every group contains 2 to 6 lines that are likely to be the same transition observed in different comets. The same work has been done for identified lines, with the difference that grouping of identified lines is precise, not statistical. Cosmic dust catalog service The NASA team at the Lyndon B. Johnson Space Center has produced diverse catalogs of the properties of dust grains collected in the atmosphere. This web based interactive data service allows an easy retrieval and analysis of cosmic dust repositories. Our tool allows to search dust particles using several criteria: shape, size interval,luster, transparency or curator classification. For each particle it is possible to show the SEM(Scanning Electron Microscopy) image, the EDS (X-ray Energy-Dispersive Spectrometry) spectra and other descriptive data..
Interactive Catalogue of Planetary Models and Data Analysis Tools 30 planetary models 16 data analysis tools Search navigation o Key words (topic) o Resource type The Catalogue enables a user o free registration o advertising of own modelling & data analysis facilities o Search for needed modelling & analysis resources o Request of modelling/ analysis service 18 European Modelling and Data Analysis Facility (M.Khodachenko, S.Miller)
We had very ambitious goals in 2009… -> 4 years later, the contract is close to completion. We propose an exciting workshop/conference agenda We develop an amazing set of outreach initiatives We run a very original Field analog exploration, We manage a successful TNA program with world level facilities We made huge progresses towards planetary VO with impressive technical/scientific developments…. We are now far above fundation… The community has to learn how to use our tools and services and… improve, refine, complete The best for the future 19 To Conclude…
