From 19 to 21 September, the RoadMap workshop took place at the Royal Belgian Institute for Space Aeronomy. The workshop was organized as a mix of invited lectures, oral presentations and poster sessions. The workshop addressed different topics related to dust and clouds, their characteristics (dynamics, radiative), their characterisation in the lab, and detection using remote sensing instruments.

The workshop included an interaction with students from the LUCA School of Art who presented an updated version of their artistic visualizations of Martian dust and ice clouds, created during their “magnet week” in March. Some impressions…
