We invite contributions to a session focused on the radiation environment in the solar system at the 2016 AGU Fall Meeting in San Francisco, CA, December 12-16.
Session ID#: 13808
Ionizing radiation is an important consideration for both solar system exploration and understanding atmospheric and surface processes of planets. In addition to exploration, the ionizing radiation environment at Earth is an important component to a multitude of phenomenon, including understanding the safety concerns of atmospheric radiation for aviation and atmospheric chemistry. There has been a recent effort to obtain in situ experimental data on the ionizing radiation environment throughout the solar system, namely the RAD detector on MSL, the SEP instrument on MAVEN, the CRaTER instrument on LRO, and multiple experiments flown on both commercial airlines and high altitude balloons at Earth. The objective of this session is to gather modelers and experimentalists dealing with high energy
particles in space, on planets, and at Earth.
