Course Description:


“Planetary Materials” is a part  of the project “Foreign high-quality Curriculum System introductions”,
that will form a unique course system for the educations of planetary  science in China previously
introduced from Washington University.

Overall, as the fruit of deepen cooperation in planetary science between Wash U and SDU.This course
will introduce students to the solar system with emphasis on Lunar and Mars geosciences, including basic
concepts of geology, mineralogy, and geological processes on planets.

Students will learn to search for and download planetary data from the NASA Planetary Data System and
the ESA Planetary Science Archive. Basic image processing techniques will be taught, including the use of
ENVI software.

Laboratory practice will provide instruction on use of image processing tools with planetary data
(for example, producing maps with important planetary surface features using the internationally accepted
lunar coordinate system).


Course Examination:


Students’ Final Scores = Scores of Ordinary Tests * 30% + Scores of the Final Exam * 70%;
Scores of ordinary tests vary according to students’ performance in class and homework, as well as completion
of a project that uses planetary data. The final exam. will be an close-book exam
