We invite you to submit an abstract to the following session of the next EGU meeting (Vienna, Austria, 17-22 April 2016).

PS5.1/ST2.2: Planetary Plasma Physics and Interactions in the Solar System

The emphasis of the session is on all aspects of planetary plasma physics and interactions in the Solar System, including:
(a) magnetospheres, ionospheres, auroras
(b) the solar wind interaction with planets, moons, asteroids and comets
(c) plasma interactions with exospheres, dust and surfaces (e.g., at Mercury, Europa, Ganymede, our Moon, etc.)
(d) intercomparisons of planetary environments

Contributions are welcome that address previous (e.g., CHANDRAYAAN-1, KAGUYA, VENUS EXPRESS, MESSENGER), present (e.g., CASSINI, MARS EXPRESS, MAVEN, ROSETTA, CHANG’E 2), forthcoming (e.g., JUNO, BEPI COLOMBO) and planned (e.g., JUICE) observations from space. Analyses of ground-based observations as well as theoretical modelling and simulations are also welcome. Laboratory studies on planetary analogues aiming to simulate the surface-plasma interaction are considered as well.

The participants will be later invited to submit an article in a forthcoming dedicated special issue in Planetary and Space Science.

Abstract submission deadline: 13 January 2016.
