Planetary Data System Geosciences Node, Jet Propulsion Laboratory, NASA
Data Center Description
The Geosciences Node (Guinness et al., 1996) is one of several discipline-specific nodes that make up the Planetary Data System (PDS). Our job is to archive and distribute datasets that are relevant to the geosciences discipline, which can be summarized as the study of the surfaces and interiors of terrestrial planetary bodies. The Geosciences Node consists of the lead node at Washington University in St. Louis and two data nodes, each responsible for a particular kind of data. They are the TES Data Node at Arizona State University and the GRS Data Node at the University of Arizona.
