Planetary Ices Image

Ices are found in numerous locations in the universe and play a key role in the chemistry, physics and evolution of bodies within planetary systems. The group contains scientists with diverse backgrounds who investigate icy solar system bodies such as the outer planet icy moons (Europa, Ganymede, Enceladus, Titan, Triton, etc.), comets, and Mars and Earth polar regions for understanding the formation and evolution of these solar and planetary systems.

Researchers in the group conduct space-based observations and computational models to study the surfaces, interiors and atmospheres of the icy bodies. Research is performed in laboratory studies, space-based observations, theoretical modeling, data analysis, and instrumentation development with trials in terrestrial environments where possible. Many opportunities exist for cooperative research efforts with universities and other FFRDC sites.
