Title: Recommended Laboratory Studies in Support of Planetary Science: Surface Chemistry of Icy Bodies
Primary Author: Robert Hodyss
Secondary Author(s): Paul D. Cooper, Reggie Hudson, Robert Carlson, Paul V. Johnson, Arthur L. Lane, Marla Moore, Louis J. Allamandola
Institution: Jet Propulsion Laboratory
Summary: We identify several areas where an increased emphasis on laboratory activities would lead to a significant return in scientific results, based on an enhanced understanding of the fundamental surface chemistry of icy bodies.
Panel Selection: Satellites: Galilean satellites, Titan, and the other satellites of the giant planets.
Primitive Bodies: Asteroids, comets, Phobos, Deimos, Pluto/Charon and other Kuiper belt objects, meteorites, and interplanetary dust.
