Committee on Planetary and Lunar Exploration
This committee is inactive.
It has been replaced by a new committee.
The committee provides oversight on the entire range of planetary system studies that can be conducted from space as well as on ground-based activities in support of space-based efforts. The disciplinary scope of its oversight includes the geosciences, atmospheres, exobiology, particles and fields, planetary astronomy, and the search for planets around other stars. The committee assists the Board in organizing studies, monitoring the implementation of strategies, and assessing technology in NASA and other government agencies.
COMPLEX was on hiatus during the Planetary Science Decadal Survey. The committee is now being reconstituted as part of the Committee on Astrobiology and Planetary Science (CAPS)
