AGU Session 23711: Geology and Geophysics of Small Solar System Bodies (P017)

Abstract deadline: August 2, 2017

We invite you to submit your abstract to our session to be held at the Fall 2017 AGU Meeting, described below:

The composition and physical properties of Small Solar System Bodies (SSSBs), remnants of the formation of planets, are key to better understand our solar system. Increased knowledge of their surface properties and their potential as resources are also necessary to prepare for robotic and human exploration. Hints about the internal structure and composition of SSSBs have been acquired recently thanks to flyby/rendezvous data from space missions, study of complex multiple asteroid systems, or close encounter between asteroids. This session welcomes abstracts on the results bringing information on the geophysical processed, the internal structure and the composition of SSSBs based on space and ground-based data, numerical models, as well as instrument/mission concepts in the prospect of future exploration.
