The European Space Agency (ESA)
Mars Express Mission
consists of an orbiter and associated instruments.
ESA Planetary Science Archive (PSA)
primary source for Mars Express data and provides data
search and download capabilities. The latest releases of
data from the various payload elements, in
PDS-compatible formats, can be found on the PSA.
Through a cooperative agreement between ESA and NASA, Mars Express data
may also be distributed by the Planetary Data System.
PDS copies of Mars Express data are available
on this Geosciences Node web site and at other PDS
Nodes as noted. The
Data Explorer (ODE) at the Geosciences Node
provides search capabilities for the HRSC, OMEGA,
MARSIS, and PFS data sets.
The Mars Express payload elements and
experiments are listed below. Please acknowledge the
Principal Investigator (PI) of a Mars Express data set
when using the data in a publication.
The Geosciences Node hosted a
workshop for users of OMEGA and HRSC data, May
21-23, 2008, at Washington University.
Workshop presentations are available.
