Introduction to the thematic nodes of IDIS

This website is dedicated to the thematic field of Atmospheres as part of the Integrated and Distributed Information Service (IDIS) developed during the EUROPlaNet Projects FP6 and FP7. In General the IDIS System is divided into five thematic nodes and one technical top node.

The EuroPlaNet IDIS thematic science node about atmospheres is hosted by the Observatoire de Versailles Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines (OVSQ) of the Institut Pierre Simon Laplace (IPSL) and is established in close cooperation with the Laboratoire Atmosphère, Milieux, Observations Spatiales (LATMOS) (ex Service d'Aeronomie).

The five EuroPlaNet IDIS thematic science nodes (Planetary Surfaces and Interiors, Atmospheres, Plasma Science, Small Bodies and Planetary Dynamics) are dedicated to open a web window to the status of solar system research and provide an effective information management system for scientists and interested persons about solar system knowledge, databases and scientific tools.

The main aim of the Atmospheres Node will be to:

  • support collaborative work in the field of Atmospheres;
  • provide information about databases and scientific tools in this field;
  • establish a scientific information management;
  • define and develop Science Cases.

These are the specific science cases related to Atmospheres:
