Evolution of small icy-silicate bodies 2013
The 6th annual workshop on small icy bodies took place July 29-August 2, 2013 at the Bear Fight Institute. This workshop focused on the active Saturn satellite Enceladus and the internal processes responsible for the geyser activity. Deposits of CO2 frost on the surface were studied as evidence of CO2 activating the geysers.
A workshop to train US Rosetta VIRTIS team members on the instrument performance and data analysis tools was held August 2-4, 2013. BFI's Dr. Jean-Philippe Combe conducted the training program for the four US VIRTIS co-investigators, Drs. Carlson, Fink, Combe, and McCord.
