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.

The slides 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.

The entire Collection will be posted to the AGU RGCPS website here:

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.
