Earth

The Geosciences Node archives Earth-based data sets that have relevance to planetary studies.

Photographs taken in February 1976 by Drs. Ronald Greeley and James Iversen during field research at Amboy Crater in the Mojave Desert of southeastern California were digitized. (PDS4)

GRSFE is the Geological Remote Sensing Field Experiment conducted in the southwestern United States in 1989 to provide a variety of data sets for testing the modeling of planetary surfaces.

Laboratory-based data sets include Mars soil analog measurements from the Bloomsburg University Goniometer (BUG), and Mars analog handlens-scale images and measurements of samples from various field locations.

The Wallops/GSFC Airborne Topographic Mapper (ATM) obtained LIDAR observations of explosion craters over the Nevada Test Site.

The Pre-Magellan data collection was assembled in advance of the 1990 Magellan mission to Venus to provide relevant radar and gravity data for comparison to Magellan data. It includes some Earth-based data sets.
