    Recent exploration of the planets has been highlighted by the development of visual imaging systems carried on board the spacecraft. This paper describes the evolution of planetary camera systems from the earliest reconnaissance flight to Mars in 1965 (Mariner 4) through the planned mission to Jupiter and Saturn in 1977. Advances in telecommunication performance, mission planning and operations, a... View full abstract»

    Multispectral mapping is an effective method for determining the spatial extent of geologic units on a planetary surface and of absorption and scattering properties in planetary atmospheres. Groundbased telescopic studies of the moon have been carried out for more than 60 years, but spacecraft missions have seldom included multispectral-mapping experiments. Development in two-dimensional detector ... View full abstract»

    Two instruments, the gamma-ray spectrometer and the X-ray fluorescence spectrometer, are uniquely suited to the chemical mapping of planetary surfaces from orbit. Through their detection of characteristic line spectra they measure the concentrations of a suite of elements in each area overflown. Multielement chemical maps derived from these remote measurements are used in the construction of evolu... View full abstract»

    The major scientific achievements associated with the measurement of magnetic fields in space over the past decade and a half are reviewed. Aspects of space technology relevant to magnetic-field observations are discussed, including the different types of magnetometers used and how they operate, problems arising from spacecraft-generated magnetic fields and the appropriate countermeasures that hav...

    Doppler radio tracking of deep space probes near extra-terrestrial bodies has provided information on the internal mass distribution for Jupiter, Mars, the Moon, Venus, and Mercury. The more detailed results have been obtained for Mars and the Moon where orbiting spacecraft (Mariner 9 and Apollo) have returned a vast amount of gravity data The instrumentation to acquire the data consists of a spac...

    The assemblage of volatiles degassed from each planetary object simultaneously reflects the preaccretion history of the solid solar-system material which accreted to produce that object and the internal differentiation history of the object. The key questions are: 1) What are the differences in bulk composition among planetary objects and how did they arise? and 2) How have volatiles within each o... View full abstract»

    The complex dielectric constant of sea water is a function of salinity at 21-cm wavelength, and sea-water salinity can be determined by a measurement of radiometric temperature at 21 cm along with a measurement of thermodynamic temperature. Three aircraft and two helicopter experiments using two different 21-cm radiometers were conducted under different salinity and temperature conditions. Ground-... View full abstract»
