GREETINGS FROM NEW NASA PLANETARY ATMOSPHERES DISCIPLINE SCIENTIST

Dear Colleagues,

I succeeded John Hillman as Discipline Scientist for the Planetary
Atmospheres Program in April 2003.  I have previously served two terms
in this role in 1995-97 and 99-01.  It is a pleasure to be again
involved in the program and to be associated with so many respected
scientists and friends.  In addition to Planetary Atmospheres I have a
number of mission assignments at NASA.  I look forward to the broad
involvement at the grass roots level and the synergy and energy of
being once again in the R & A program.

Sincerely,

Denis Bogan
