Title:  Finding Planetary Data Online Using SBN Data Base: New Approach

Abstract: This talk will present a new type of searcher that allows finding the data on comets and asteroids collected at the Small Bodies Node of the Planetary Data System. One of the main goals of the presentation is to get feedback from planetary astronomers for further improvement of the searcher. Come to see new opportunities that the searcher opens for your research and to help us make it easier to use and better adjust to the needs of the planetary astronomers

Title:  Completing the Inventory of the Outer Solar System

Abstract: The dynamical and physical properties of asteroids offer us a glimpse at the processes operating in the solar system and allow us to understand planet formation and evolution. The effects of nebular gas drag, collisions, planet migration, overlapping resonances and the mass growth of planets all potentially influence the formation and evolution of asteroids. The recent advent of sensitive wide-field CCD detectors allows us to complete the inventory of our solar system and obtain detailed knowledge about the small bodies it contains.

Title:  Magnetic Fields at Mars

Abstract: Mars lacks an intrinsic planetary magnetic field but large portions of the crust are highly magnetized. This means that Mars is a hybrid obstacle to the solar wind. It is neither purely magnetospheric nor a purely ionospheric obstacle. Stripping of the planetary ionosphere leads to significant atmospheric loss. A large variety of interesting plasma waves are generated by the interaction. Results of models will be discussed as well as potential future missions designed to address these topics.
