Dear Colleagues,

The submission deadline is drawing near for abstracts at 2019 AGU
Fall Meeting. We would like to encourage your participation in our session,
which is focused on *carbon *and*hydrogen* in the Earth’s interior:

*Session ID*: 85234
*Session Title*: Carbon and Hydrogen in the Deep Earth
*Section*: Mineral and Rock Physics (MR005)

*Session Description*: Carbon and hydrogen both play significant roles in
the physical, petrological, geochemical, and geodynamic processes that
shape our planet. Yet despite their importance, the degree and mechanisms
of the cycling of these volatiles between Earth’s surface and interior
remains an area of open inquiry, as is the long-term accommodation (i.e.,
storage) of carbon and hydrogen in the deep Earth. This session aims to
unite researchers from the fields of seismology, geodynamics, petrology,
geochemistry, and mineral physics, who actively investigate the role of
carbon and hydrogen in Earth’s interior. Relevant topics include, but are
not limited to: investigations into the origin, cycling, and fractionation
of carbon and hydrogen; seismic and geodynamic studies of their influence
in the deep Earth; and experimental and theoretical constraints on the
structure, stability, and physical properties of carbon- and
hydrogen-bearing phases at extreme conditions.

*Invited Presenters*: Kei Hirose (Tokyo Institute of Technology) and Jacob
Tielke (Lunar and Planetary Institute)

*Conveners*: Lars Hansen (University of Oxford), Natalia Solomatova (CNRS,
École Normale Supérieure de Lyon), Lily Thompson (Sewanee: The University
of the South), and Cara Vennari (University of California Santa Cruz)

The AGU abstract portal is open for submissions and the deadline is *July
31st*. To submit an abstract and to get more information about this
session, visit

We look forward to seeing you in San Francisco!

Thank you for your consideration,

Cara Vennari, University of California Santa Cruz
