The Planetary Laboratory Analyzing Environments, Terrains, and Analogs (PLANETAS) is a research group at the Georgia Institute of Technology, led by Dr. Frances Rivera-Hernández! Broadly, our research is dedicated to understanding planetary surface processes and environments (modern and ancient) as recorded in sedimentary deposits and landforms. Our research is interdisciplinary, commonly integrating field work, lab studies, remote sensing, and numerical analyses. We explore the Earth, Mars, Moon, and beyond!
The PLANETAS group is in the School of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences, and contributes to Georgia Tech’s diverse and interdisciplinary space science and astrobiology communities. If you are interested in joining the PLANETAS research group, please check out available opportunities here.
***Our group values diverse perspectives and identities and is committed to fostering a welcoming, inclusive, and constructive environment for all members.***
