About the Planetary Atmospheres Node
The Planetary Atmospheres Node (Atmospheres Node, or Atmos)
of the Planetary Data System
(PDS) is responsible for the acquisition, preservation, and
distribution of all non-imaging atmospheric data from all
planetary missions (excluding Earth observations). The primary goal of
the node is to make available to the research community the
highest quality data possible. To this end, data are reviewed and
re-formatted where necessary in order to meet the documentation and
quality standards established by the PDS.
As an additional service, the Atmospheres Node provides information on relevant planetary atmospheres topics for educational purposes.
