TA1 Planetary Field Analogue sites

Europlanet 2024 RI’s TA1 Planetary Field Analogues (PFA) provide the most realistic terrestrial geological-geomorphological analogues for volcanic, dry-and humid-cold, hot, highly saline and metalliferous and impact conditions for studies in support of current and forthcoming missions to Mars, the Moon and the icy moons of Jupiter. Europlanet 2024 RI offers free ‘transnational access’ to five diverse PFA sites around the world to carry out research projects.
