BepiColombo on Its Cruise to Mercury — Status, Results and Upcoming Activities [#2106]
Launched on 20 October 2018, BepiColombo is on route to Mercury and is already producing great science at Mercury and Venus.
Schroeder J. L.* Livi S. Allegrini F.
Strofio: A Status Update [#2060]
Strofio is a neutral mass spectrometer designed to explore the exosphere of Mercury. A status update on its current state will be presented.
Sun W. J.* Dewey R. M. Slavin J. A. Raines J. M. Poh G.
MESSENGER Observations of Distribution of Sodium-Group Ions Near Mercury’s Space: Their Dependence on True Anomaly Angle and Escape Rates [#2031]
Sodium-group ions near Mercury’s space: their dependence on true anomaly angle and escape rates.
Bauch K. E.* Morlok A. Hiesinger H. Reitze M. P. Schmedemann N. et al.
Unmixinig of Laboratory IR Spectral Reflectance Measurements of Low-Mg Northern Volcanic Plains Analogs [#2247]
We present results of spectral unmixing analyses of low-Mg northern volcanic plains analogs mineral mixtures using a non-linear unmixing model.
Morlok A.* Renggli C. Charlier B. Namur O. Klemme S. et al.
Analogs for the Terranes of Mercury: A FTIR Study in Preparation of the BepiColombo Mission [#2373]
We present mid-IR data of sythetic mixtures representing the surface of Mercury.

Present-Day Endogenic and Exogenic Activity on Mercury and Opportunities for Future Observations [#2119]
Temporal imaging shows evidence of recent impacts as well as possible landslides and hollow formation. New observations from BepiColombo can give new insight!
Wright J.* Caminiti E. Rae A. S. P. Besse S.
Source of Mercury's Hollow-Forming Materials: Preliminary Insights from Impact Simulations and MASCS Spectra [#2092]
Volatile skin deep / Or deeper still, Mercury? / MASCS and iSALE ask.
Giroud-Proeschel E.* Johnson C. L. Jellinek A. M.
Characterization of Hollow Locations Inside Craters of Different Degradation Indices on Mercury [#2123]
Craters of different degradation indices provide a framework to better understand the timing and evolution of hollows forming inside them.
Martinez-Camacho J. M.* Siegler M. A. Bertone S. Chabot N. L. Mazarico E. et al.
Modeling Temperatures and Ice Distribution at Mercury's South Pole [#3008]
We model surface and subsurface temperatures and ice stability at Mercury’s south pole using a ray-tracing thermal model.
