UCM - Universidad Complutense de Madrid
The Faculty of Geological Sciences of the UCM has a tradition of around 25 years in research about planetary sciences, and specifically on geology and geophysics of Mars and other planetary sciences. Research relevant to the proposal is carried out at the Department of Geodynamics of that faculty, where several researchers and students are involved on planetary research.
