ASU Ronald Greeley Center for Planetary Studies -
The Ronald Greeley 35mm Slide Collection
September 23, 2022.
The Jovian System bundle is released. See the
User's Guide for a
description of this bundle.
The Ronald Greeley 35mm Slide
Collection consists of color and
grayscale slides that include images of
planetary bodies (Moon, planets, asteroids,
and comets), planetary missions (e.g.,
Voyager, Galileo, Viking), planetary analog
sites on Earth, and presentation materials for
research results presented at national
conferences. The slides were produced by Dr.
Ronald Greeley during his tenure as a research
scientist in the late 1960s while at working
at NASA Ames, through to the early 2000s when
he was a Regents Professor at Arizona State
University. The slides were digitized to
preserve the research materials of Dr. Ronald
Greeley, who played a critical role in the
planetary missions to the planets of the inner
and outer Solar System.
were professionally scanned at high resolution
(4000 dpi) and organized into document bundles
by subject: aeolian and volcanic Earth analog
sites, wind tunnel laboratory experiments,
general space science, and by individual
planetary bodies (e.g., Moon, Mars) and
planetary systems (e.g., Jovian System). In
addition to the digital products, metadata for
each slide (where information is available) is
included in the Collection.
Collection will be posted to the AGU RGCPS
Presently, only the
Jovian System bundle is archived at the
Geosciences Node. Additional bundles may be added in the future. The data
were provided by David A. Willams and David M.
Nelson, Arizona State University.
