We need the terrestrial perspective for Ocean Worlds at AGU!
Ice-ocean and general "Ocean World"
enthusiasts: we want you to join us! Session P020, "From the Earth to the
Moons: Unraveling the Geologic, Oceanographic and Chemical Mysteries of
Ice and Ocean Worlds"
Cross-listed in planetary, cryosphere,
and ocean sciences, we're bringing together studies of ice and ocean
worlds: those in our own solar system (including Earth!), possible
analogues in extra-solar systems, and the associated geological,
geochemical and oceanographic processes that might contribute to the
evolution (habitability included) of ices, oceans and their
How might the observable surface be
representative of processes taking place in the subsurface? How might
these processes contribute to extreme biological habitats, and
habitability? What types of interactions drive their evolution? Seeking
to bridge Earth and planetary studies from Mercury to Pluto and all
satellites in between, we encourage contributions on: in-situ/remote
sensing observations; theoretical and laboratory work; analog field work
investigations. Link for more info: https://agu.confex.com/agu/fm18/prelim.cgi/Session/45706
We hope to see you in Washington, D.C. this December, discoveries abound! It will be fun!
