CAPS Team Meeting #33 Agenda page
Agenda items included in this list are from the CAPS team meeting held in Charlottesville, Virginia at the University of Virginia, hosted by Bob Johnson & Raul Baragiola (along with Todd Smith).

The dates for this meeting were Monday-Wednesday, November 13-15, 2006.

CAPS Team members: Meeting presentations and agenda are available on the secure site, at the Meetings page.

Non-team members interested in presentations from CAPS Team Meetings can view the agenda and are invited to contact the presenter, or Judy Furman ( with your request.

Ground Rules:
  1) These are NOT AGU or EUROPLANET "talks". They are meant to be reports on, and discussion of, current research topics.
  2) There are 30 discussion topics, which works to 30 minutes per topic, including discussion. Time limits will be enforced. However, an effort has been made to put similar topics together so momentum isn't lost from talk to talk.
