VESPA / Europlanet-2020-RI - Science themes




This is a legacy page from the Europlanet-2020 programme (2015-2019). Please refer to this site for the current Europlanet-2024 programme.




VESPA developments are supported by 6 science themes. Their role is to study possible Virtual Observatory functions in specific contexts, to design new workflows to support science analysis, and to prepare new data services.



Science themes
SSHADE Spectroscopy of solids (ice, minerals, organics)
Planetary surfaces Will study interfaces between the VO and Geographic Information Systems, and fits format extension to handle planetary surfaces
Magnetospheres Will focus on data services for observations and modeling, in particular multi-spacecraft observations
Small bodies Will study a modern interface to the catalogue of small bodies, and a tool to set up multi-site observations (e.g., for star occultations)
Planetary atmospheres Will focus on data services for observations and modeling, and link with spectroscopy databases
Exoplanets Will develop the Encyclopedia of Exoplanets and study connections with other services in the field
