Measurements and Models at the Surface of Mars
Measurements and Models at the Surface of Mars

Date: Monday, June 20, 2011
Time: 9:00am - 12:30pm
Location: Caltech
Speaker: Ray Arvidson, Jose Andrade, Karl Iagnemma

Interested researchers are invited to attend this short course is being held in conjunction with the KISS study "xTerramechanics: Integrated Simulation of Planetary Surface Missions."


Interested researchers are invited to attend a Keck Institute for Space Studies (KISS) half-day short course entitled "Measurements and Models at the Surface of Mars."

This short course is being held in conjunction with the KISS study "xTerramechanics: Integrated Simulation of Planetary Surface Missions."

This short course will review the methods for measuring and modeling surface interactions on non-terrestrial environments. The focus will be on soil mechanics and terramechanics techniques for assessing robot mobility over unknown terrains.

Speakers include:

  • Professor Ray Arvidson, Washington University - "Current State of the Art in Surface Measurements for Martian Geology"
  • Professor Jose Andrade, Caltech - "Current Methods for Surface Interaction Modeling - Soil Mechanics"
  • Professor Karl Iagnemma, MIT - "Current Methods for Surface Interaction Modeling - Engineers"

The short course will be videotaped and made available on the KISS website within two weeks after the workshop is completed.

Seating is limited and is available on a first come, first served basis - and no fee or registration is required. An informal lunch is provided for all short course attendees.

Please see http://www.kiss.caltech.edu or the event flyer (PDF, 278 KB) for more details.
