User Workshop for Mars ChemCam/LIBS Data at LPSC 2014

The ChemCam LIBS dataset from Curiosity represents a large and varied geochemical dataset available for the planetary community. It involves active laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS), passive reflectance spectra over the 0.4-0.9 micron range, and the highest resolution remote images from the rover, from ChemCam's Remote Micro-Imager (RMI). The last submission to the Planetary Data System (PDS) included a total data volume of 7.7 GB, including a recalibration of the elemental compositions from 2156 locations along the rover traverse, along with > 1500 RMI images.

A 3-hour workshop will be held in Houston for community members interested in using this dataset. This workshop will be in conjunction with the 45th Lunar and Planetary Science Conference. The workshop will begin at 3 pm on Sunday March 16, 2014 in the Alden Bridge at The Woodlands Waterway Marriott.

Please RSVP at with your name and email so we have an idea of how many people to expect. If you have any questions, please contact Roger Wiens at
