We cordially invite you to submit an abstract to the 11th Special AGU Session on Saturn’s geysering moon, Enceladus.

Though the very close targeted flybys of Enceladus by the Cassini spacecraft at Saturn came to an end in December 2015, Cassini’s more distant remote-sensing observations of the moon will continue up to the mission’s finale, slated to occur no later than September 15, 2017. Consequently, this special AGU session on Enceladus will be the last one to occur while Cassini is still active at Saturn.

As in years past, we will focus on the most recent observational, theoretical and modeling efforts aimed at assessing Enceladus’ ocean chemistry, the characteristics and hydrodynamics of its geysers, the moon’s dynamical and rotational states, its thermal and interior structure and evolution, its geological history, as well as its astrobiological potential. Presentations on concepts for future missions back to Enceladus will also be considered.

Submit an abstract to this session.

Final Submission Deadline is 3 August, 11:59 PM EDT.

Conveners: Carolyn Porco(Space Science Institute; UC Berkeley)
Chris McKay (NASA Ames Research Center)
