Title: Characteristics of the surface of comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko

During Rosetta's two year study of 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko (C-G), the surface of the comet was observed with a suite of instruments revealing its surface properties, composition, widely varying morphology, and transient features. I will present a summary of what we have learned about the surface, using various methods across all wavelengths, and how C-G compares to other cometary nuclei that have been visited by spacecraft.
