Dear colleagues,

We’d like to cordially invite you to contribute to our session, “P016 – Ice and Ocean Worlds: Geology, oceanography, chemistry, habitability”, at this year’s AGU Fall Meeting in San Francisco.

Please feel free to forward this announcement to your colleagues, postdocs and students.

Session Title: P016 – Ice and Ocean Worlds: Geology, Oceanography, Chemistry, Habitability

This session brings together studies of icy and ocean worlds: those in our own solar system (Earth, Europa, Enceladus, Titan, Ganymede, Triton, as well as frozen dwarf planets, such as Pluto!) and possible worlds in extra-solar systems! We want to understand processes that may be occurring within such worlds from a multi-/inter-disciplinary perspective. What geological, geochemical and/or oceanographic processes might contribute to the evolution of such bodies? The habitability of these icy worlds can be assessed through geophysical measurements of their interior temperatures and compositions. How might current studies relate to, or be tested by, past/ongoing/upcoming missions such as Europa Clipper, Jupiter Icy Moons Explorer (JUICE)? We're seeking to bridge Earth and planetary sciences to enable a mixing of ideas and expertise from Mercury to Pluto and all in between. We encourage contributions on any topic relating to the icy/ocean world theme, including geophysics, geodynamic modeling, seismic waveform modeling/inversion, hydrogeology, geochemistry, microbiology, in-situ/remote sensing observations, theoretical/modeling and laboratory work, analog field investigations, and more.
