AGU SESSION PS 2692: RAPID ENVIRONMENTAL CHANGE AND THE FATE OF PLANETARY HABITABILITY

Rapid environmental change can be used as a scientific bridge, relating astrobiology to earth, planetary, and space sciences in the study of how life may adapt through abrupt climate crises. Recent discoveries inspire us to re-examine our understanding of how rapidly
planetary habitats can be redistributed. Past habitable environments on Mars from the Curiosity rover, possible subsurface lakes and oceans on Europa or Enceladus, and potentially habitable exoplanets from the Kepler spacecraft continue to expand our definition of the habitable zone. Abstracts on the intertwined aspects of changing habitability, including the complex interactions among astronomical, geological,
and climatic forces, on the Earth and beyond, are welcome.

Deadline for abstract submission: 6 August 23:59 EDT/03:59 +1 GMT
