Project ideas

Project ideas are meant to help inspire student thinking about their own project. Students are in the driver seat of their research and are free to use any or none of the ideas shared by their mentors.

Fundamentals of Planetary Mapping and Analysis

In this project, you will learn about the fundamentals of planetary mapping and analysis, as well as explore how planetary mapping can facilitate mineralogical and geomorphological research of terrestrial bodies within our solar system. You will produce a cartographically correct map of your finished research and write a scientific research paper using LaTex. You will also do a literature review in preparation of your project and to build up your knowledge on Planetary Science. Upon completion of your project, you will have a fundamental knowledge of the following topics: • planetary data acquisition, processing, and analysis • planetary surface processes on terrestrial and/or icy bodies • cartographic techniques • geographic information systems and remote sensing applications • scientific writing
