Carbon in the Solar System Workshop

The program for the Carbon in the Solar System workshop is now posted!

April 25-27, 2018

Please join us to discuss the signatures of carbonaceous compounds throughout the solar system in the first of two workshops sponsored by NASA’s Solar System Exploration Research Virtual Institute (SSERVI) about Carbon in the Solar System. This is a workshop without walls, so participants will listen to presentations and participate in discussions remotely (telephone and video conferencing).

Some of the topics to be discussed are:

Where do we/don’t we find carbon and why?
What techniques are used to observe it?
How does meteoritic carbon relate to the history of the solar system?

What can we learn about relationships between carbon in the interstellar medium (ISM) and dense molecular clouds, where planetary systems form in protoplanetary disks, and the carbon we see today in our own solar system?

How do carbon compounds evolve with weathering/processing?

Hope to see/hear you there! (please check the website for connection information)
