Hello all,

If you are interested in planetary interiors and their evolution, please consider submitting to the following session. One week to go!


DI014: Probing Planetary Interiors Beyond Earth: Evolution Through Time and Space

The compositional diversity of planets in our Solar System and predicted to exist in exoplanets represents a new frontier in geologic science. The mineralogy, dynamics and structure of these bodies may be wholly different from the Earth and present exciting challenges for observers, experimentalists and modelers alike. In this session we would like to address the effects of planetary composition on planetary evolution. We welcome abstracts exploring the compositional diversity of bodies, planetary accretion, mineral phase-equilibria and physical properties, interior dynamics, and surface/mantle interactions. We welcome novel observational approaches for determining planetary interior structure and composition as well as efforts to model and/or experimentally explore the consequences of potential variability of planetary interiors.
