MARS AERONOMY WORKSHOP PRELIMINARY ANNOUNCEMENT
Washington, DC
August 18-19, 2004.
 
In order to help meet the new challenges offered by NASA's newly
announced Vision for Space Exploration, the NASA Solar System
Exploration and Sun-Earth Connection Divisions are jointly
sponsoring a Mars Aeronomy Workshop to consider the goals 
for future studies of the Martian upper atmosphere/ionosphere
and to assess possible missions for their implementation.  
This workshop will be held August 18-19, 2004, in the 
Washington, DC, area at a yet-to-be identified hotel.  
This and other logistic information will be posted on the 
web site below on or before July 14:

The Mars Aeronomy Working Group (MAWG), chaired by 
Prof. Bruce Jakosky of the University of Colorado, will 
organize this Workshop. The MAWG charter is also available 
at the web site above.
 
The purpose of this Workshop is to provide a forum in which 
goals and opportunities for studies of the Martian upper 
atmosphere/ionosphere can be openly discussed and critiqued 
by the community at large.  Its results will be made publicly 
available in the form of a brief "white paper."  The NASA 
Headquarters contacts for this effort are Dr. Mary Mellott 
(mary.m.mellott@nasa.gov) and Dr. Denis Bogan 
(denis.j.bogan@nasa.gov), either of whom may be contacted 
for questions.
