UK Space Agency grant awarded to SPS researcher to study ExoMars landing site

Dr Matt Balme has been awarded ~ £370K by the UK Space Agency for a project to observe and model the formation of wind-related landforms at the ExoMars rover landing site, both before and after it lands. This grant includes a 3-year postdoc and a field excursion to Iceland to examine similar features with the ExoMars PanCam emulator. Prof Stephen Lewis is a Co-I along with others from Aberystwyth, Ulster and Southampton.
