Introduction to the PDSSBN and the review process

The PDS Small Bodies Node is a discipline node of the Planetary Data System (PDS) charged with archiving data concerning comets, asteroids, and interplanetary dust. The PDS archive is a "deep archive," intended to contain sufficient documentation and ancillary data for future scientists to interpret and use the data long after the original scientists or teams are no longer available to help. It is also intended to provide useful data to researchers in a convenient way at the present time. In reviewing the data you should keep in mind these two complementary goals of preserving the data in a way useable to future generations and making the data easily accessible to current researchers.


How to review the data

The review period will be 20 Sep - 15 October 2004, and the review meeting will be held on October 24-15, in the Computer and Space Sciences building of the University of Maryland, College Park, MD. (Here's the agenda.) Please allow yourself enough time to do a thorough review of the data sets.

Follow the step-by-step Review Instructions to insure a complete review of the data. We suggest you read through these instructions at the beginning of the review period and assess how much time will be needed so you can plan accordingly. Also, Mike A'Hearn has provided some more specific guidance in this Letter to External Reviewers.

For an overview of the review process and what to expect at the review itself, see the Small Bodies Node writeup on The Peer Review Process.

For additional guidance on reviewing the data sets, see the Small Bodies Node writeup What We Need from Data Reviewers.

The Review Meeting

The Fall 2004 Comet Dataset Review starts on Monday, 20 September 2004 and culminates in the review meeting held on Thursday-Friday, October 14-15, at the University of Maryland, College Park. The review meeting will be held in the Computer and Space Sciences Building (#224), in a room yet to be determined.

Meeting Notes:

Here is the list of liens collected during the meeting:

For each data set, liens collected during the review as well as liens and corrections reported prior to the review, are gathered into one list. These data set lists are available via the "liens" links below. You can also see the complete list of submitted liens and notes this directory.
