Project Progress

  1. We analyzed domes and other features on Europa that are geologically young and that appear to have brought material to the surface from beneath the ice crust.
  2. We initiated global geological mapping of Europa, as the first step in identifying key sites for future exploration.
  3. We interacted with colleagues through the NAI Europa Focus group.
