Dear colleagues,

We would like to encourage your participation in our AGU Fall Meeting session, which is focused on volatile elements in planetary interiors (details below):

MR023: Volatile Elements in Planetary Interiors: Storage, Cycling, and Implications

Session ID#: 47263

Session Description:

Volatile elements including hydrogen, carbon, nitrogen, oxygen, sulfur, and the halogen group elements play an important role in the dynamics, structure, and evolution of the Earth's interior, and are believed to play a similarly important role in other terrestrial planets. The cycling of volatile elements between a planet's surface and interior can be coupled to planetary-scale processes, and volatile elements within a planet's interior can influence a wide range of properties including redox state, conductivity, rheology, viscosity, melting, and element partitioning. This session aims to unite researchers from the fields of geochemistry, petrology, mineral physics, rock mechanics, seismology, and geodynamics whose work addresses the role of volatile elements in planetary interiors, the stability and cycling of volatile element-bearing phases at extreme conditions, and the influence of volatile elements on geological processes within the Earth and other terrestrial bodies.

Invited Presenters: Oliver Tschauner (University of Nevada, Las Vegas) and Ananya Mallik (Brown University)

Conveners: Jin Liu (Stanford University), Jessica Warren, (University of Delaware), Elizabeth C. Thompson (Northwestern University), and Marc M. Hirschmann (University of Minnesota

The AGU abstract portal is already open and the deadline is August 1st. You can view more information about this session and submit an abstract at:

We look forward to seeing you in Washington, D.C.!

On behalf of the conveners,
