Moon Zoo at the European Planetary Science Congress 2012
« on: October 11, 2012, 01:53:03 pm »
Moon Zoo team member Dr Tony Cook presented a Moon Zoo presentation at the recent Europlanetary Science Congress in Madrid. He asked me to help put the content together and the result is attached: Moon Zoo – Examples of Interesting Lunar Morphology. It is based on the challenges he set us in the TLP threads. The short paper highlights discoveries made by several forum members. The talk went well and hopefully helped spread the word about the work we are doing at Moon Zoo. Tony is now working out how best to get even more information from our posts such as a standard format for entering lunar co-ordinates to allow them to be captured by computer. More soon!

Maybe. One hopes that in the full paper i get at least a nod for all the black stuff i posted in the tlp thread. Is that too much?

There's much more work to be done on these threads. Much more.

I doubt if there will be a paper based on the TLP threads any time soon as Tony is still working out how best to use them - and what extra info he wants us to put in there - but if and when a paper does emerge then yes, certainly we can read it. There is a lot of information in many threads and trawling through them to make sense of them and pick out which are genuine candidates (and ID the locations) is taking time but he wanted to highlight some of our work - hence the conference presentation.

The mods recently met up with Roberto our new science lead who has some great ideas for Moon Zoo and who is analysing our clicks so far. His work will definitely result in more science papers. There are other things planned for Moon Zoo before the end of the year too. Stay tuned!

Probably best to wait until the format has been decided I think though coordinates in any form might help for now.
