1st IUGG Symposium on Planetary Science (IUGG-PS 2017)
Interdisciplinary observation and understanding of the Solar System
July 3-5, 2017, Berlin, Germany
Planetary science is an increasingly interdisciplinary field of research propelled forward by advances in space exploration and ground based studies. Detailed characterization of planetary environments within and beyond our Solar System requires collaborative studies across the fields of geology, atmospheric science, geophysics, geodesy, seismology, aeronomy, planetary origins, chemistry and astrobiology. The 1st IUGG Symposium on Planetary Science (IUGG-PS2017): Interdisciplinary observation and understanding of the Solar System will be held on July 3-5, 2017, Berlin, Germany. The IUGG-PS2017 aims to bring together international scientists and engineers focused on a interdisciplinary work on exploration and science of the solar system and seeking life beyond Earth. Topics include planetary geodesy, remote sensing, atmosphere, ionosphere/plasma physics, magnetic and gravity field, geomorphology, geophysics, geodynamics, geology, petrology, volcanology, geochemistry, interior physics, Life & Astrobiology. All objects from the terrestrial and giant planets to exoplanets, including small bodies are welcome.
The IUGG-PS2017 is sponsored by the IUGG Union Commission on Planetary Sciences (UCPS), International Association of Planetary Sciences (IAPS) and German Aerospace Center (DLR). The UCPS was established by the Executive Committee of International Union of Geodesy and Geophysics (IUGG) in June 2015 to advance emerging and existing interdisciplinary research on planetary sciences. The main topics and sessions are as follows:
