Mars Pathfinder Participating Scientists
and Facility Instrument Science Team (FIST)

Listed below are nineteen investigators that have been selected by NASA Headquarters in response to the Announcement of Opportunity for selection of Mars Pathfinder Participating Scientists (13) and a Facility Instrument Science Team (6) for the Atmospheric Structure Instrument/Meteorology Package. The purpose of the Participating Scientist program is to broaden scientific participation in the mission and to enhance the science return from the mission by augmenting the science team to include investigations not now represented.

The function of the Mars Pathfinder Atmospheric Structure Instrument/Meteorology Package Facility Instrument Science Team is to optimize the operation and data return from this facility instrument, to do initial scientific analysis of the data in support of the mission and to produce and place properly calibrated and referenced data sets into the Planetary Data System for use by the entire scientific community. Dr. Schofield was elected as Lead of the ASI/MET FIST.
