Join us for a conference session on planetary geoscience, where we will explore celestial bodies beyond our own. Our goal is to foster interdisciplinary collaborations and inspire new insights into the diverse worlds that populate our solar system and beyond. We welcome contributions focusing on geoscience topics applicable to celestial bodies, including investigations into their surfaces, interiors, and atmospheres. Our session aims to uncover the similarities and differences between these celestial bodies, shedding light on their formation, evolution, and current and past geological processes.
One focus of this session is planetary geomorphology. Researchers are invited to present studies on the morphological features found on planetary surfaces, Moons and small bodies, including experimental results and Earth-analog studies. Contributions discussing ice-related landforms and processes, glacial and periglacial geomorphology, mass wasting, impact cratering and similar phenomena are encouraged.
Additionally, presentations on planetary geochemistry are highly welcomed, aiming to understand the elemental composition and chemical processes within different planetary environments. By exploring isotopic signatures, mineralogy, and organic compounds found on these celestial bodies, we can gain valuable insights into their geological history and potential habitability.
