Finished Projects

In the 50 years of MPE research some projects have been terminated or have been finished. Here links to their web pages and other useful information are provided. Please be aware that this is an archive and the links are to the old web pages in a different design. Also, some links on those pages may have expired!

Finished projects are projects where data gathering or operation has been terminated but very often data analysis and interpretation are still very intensive.
