DAP

The Dust, Atmosphere and Plasma environment of the Moon and Small Bodies (DAP-2017) workshop will be a forum to (i) discuss our current understanding of the surface environment of the Moon, the moons of Mars, and asteroids, (ii) share new results from past and ongoing missions to airless bodies and comets, and (iii) describe expectations for planned upcoming missions to airless bodies and comets.

The 2017 workshop will be held in Boulder and hosted by LASP on January 11th-13th. It will be focused on the open science questions, the status and future of our supporting modeling and laboratory experimental capabilities, and the definition of the required measurements and instrument capabilities for future investigations from orbit or landed missions.

DAP-2017 is a follow up on two previous workshops, LDAP-2010 and DAP-2012. Contributions to LDAP-2010 and DAP-2012 were published in special issues of Planetary and Space Sciences. A similar volume is planned to report the contributions to DAP-2017.
