AOGS Session PS02: Volcanism and Tectonism Across the Solar System

Asia Oceania Geosciences Conference 2018
June 3-8, Honolulu, Hawaii
Abstract submission deadline: January 19, 2018

The surfaces of the terrestrial planets and their satellites have been largely shaped through volcanic and tectonic processes. Extreme conditions on outer solar system bodies, such as the Jovian and Saturnian satellites, result in different types of volcanism and tectonism. Fracturing and faulting processes mainly affect minor bodies such as asteroids and small moons, where volcanism and tectonism have not played an important role. We invite contributions that cover a wide range of topics including geomorphology and composition of volcanic deposits, edifices, and plumes, volcano-induced deformation and edifice growth and collapse to tectonic structures, faulting and fracturing processes, crustal stress and strain analysis, cryovolcanism, and any study related to planetary endogenic processes. Furthermore, studies that relay interactions between planetary interiors, surfaces, and atmospheres are welcomed. Comparative studies of volcanic or tectonic systems on Earth with a strong remote sensing component are encouraged.

Hope to see you there!
