Asia Oceania Geosciences Conference 2016
July 31 – Aug 5, Beijing, China

Conference website

Abstract submission deadline: extended to March 4, 2016

Session Description: Recent years have provided us with many new insights on both the Moon and Mercury. In the past the Moon was often considered as a Mercury analog. Now we know that this view is true only to a limited extent. However there are many similarities between these two bodies, and the differences allow us to learn more about airless bodies in the Solar System in general. Therefore we invite contributions to this comparative session. In addition to comparative presentations, contributions that focus on just one of these bodies are welcome.
