Principal Investigator for the High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment (HiRISE). HiRISE will acquire giant images (up to 20,000 x 65,000 pixels) with very high spatial resolution, sufficient to identify features with dimensions as small as 1 meter. We will also produce topographic maps at the meter scale, which we will use to produce spectacular simulations of flying low over the surface, like helicopter rides.
I participated in the landing site evaluations, and look forward to imaging the landing site regions with HiRISE.
Participating Scientist on the Thermal Emission Imaging System (THEMIS), studying lava flows, channels, and craters.
Participating Scientist on the Mars Orbital Camera (MOC).
I was a Peace Corps Volunteer in Guatemala 1975-77, but in the 1980s I processed the Viking images at the U.S. Geological Survey to produce global color mosaics.
