Tuesday, April 8, 2008 - New England Region Spring Meeting and Technical Presentation

Brown University
Providence, Rhode Island
6:30 - 9:00 pm

The Technical Meeting at Brown University was an excellent program. Presentations were given discussing exciting remote sensing work being done utilizing hyperspectral data from Mars to support geological research, as well as a project investigating large scale land-use/land-cover change in the Amazon basin. Attendees were also given the opportunity to tour and experience the 8' cube VR simulation "CAVE". On display in the CAVE was data from Victoria crater on Mars. You could even see the tire tracks from the Opportunity rover! In the CAVE, you almost feel like you're walking on Mars! Researchers also use the cave for medical education and research, as well as mission planning for trips to Antartica and hopefully beyond!
