Please consider submitting an abstract for Session PS04 at the AOGS Meeting in Beijing (Jul 31 – Aug 5, 2016).
Aeronomy is the study of the upper regions of planetary atmospheres where ionization and dissociation are important. Over the past several decades, many planetary missions have contributed substantially to our knowledge of the physical, chemical, and dynamical processes occurring within the mesospheres, thermospheres, exospheres, and ionospheres of various Solar System objects, as well as the couplings of these regions both downward with the lower
atmospheres and upward with the plasma environments. The comparative approach is becoming increasingly fruitful when applied to Solar System objects as both spacecraft- and ground-based datasets are accumulated and interpreted by sophisticated multi-species fluid
and kinetic models. In this session, we invite abstracts on observational, theoretical, and experimental results of different aspects of aeronomical processes within the Solar System. We also invite presentations on relevant future planetary missions (scientific goals, instrumentations, etc.). Both solicited and contributed talks will be included.
