Metis Topical Teams

Aim of the Metis Topical Teams is to create working groups that will, on the one hand, support scientists in the interpretation of Metis data and provide ideas for observation planning and, on the other hand, take advantage of different expertises in order to tackle scientific issues with Metis data.

Each Team is led by a Metis Co-I and is self-organized. Progress in the work of the Teams will be reported at the yearly Metis workshop.
