EPSC conference  EPSC poster 


Several partners of the RoadMap H2020 project were attending the EPSC Conference. A dedicated session, "Martian dust and clouds: from lab to space", organized by the project's main partners was held with a poster session on Maonday and oral sessions on Tuesday and Wednesday.

The aim of this session was to bring together scientists involved in modelling and observing Martian dust and clouds, from the lab to the analysis of space data. We will consider presentations on observations, field and laboratory experiments covering different aspects of dust and clouds, such as aeolian processes, dust lifting, sedimentation, scavenging, nucleation, aggregation, optical properties including scattering characterization, etc, but also on modeling of these processes from the perspective of implementation in radiative transfer codes or Global Circulation models.


A new animated video has been developed in order to present the roles of the different partners of the RoadMap research project to the public. *English/Dutch/ French dubtitles available*
