The GSA Cordilleran Section Meeting will be held in Honolulu, HI, 23-25 May 2017. There will be a number of sessions of relevance to planetary scientists.

We welcome submissions to the following sessions:

T16. New Developments in the Geology and Geochemistry of Mars (Bell, Rowland)
Conveners: Jim Bell and Scott Rowland
This session will highlight spectacular recent advances in our understanding of the geology and geochemistry of Mars. Orbiters, landers, and rovers are almost daily providing new views, and new data, that paint a picture of Mars as a world with a complex volcanic, impact, tectonic, and fluvial history.

T17. Volcanism Across the Solar System
Conveners: Sarah Fagents and Rosaly Lopes
This session will focus on extraterrestrial volcanism, from our neighboring silicate planets to the ice-rich bodies of the outer solar system. We encourage contributions discussing new data and observations, recent modeling developments, novel techniques, field analog studies, integration of diverse data sets, and comparative planetary studies.

Abstract deadline is 14 February 2017.

In addition to the conference sessions, there is a slate of workshops and short courses, as well as fieldtrips on Oahu, Maui, Kauai, and Hawaii.
