Abstract submission closes March 29 (https://goldschmidt.info/2019/abstracts/instructions).
We encourage submissions from all areas of experimental petrology, including surface conditions, lower pressure/temperature conditions, and higher pressure/temperature conditions.
Session 01e: Petrological Evolution of Solar System Bodies Through Experimental Studies
Understanding the processes by which rocky planetary bodies in our Solar System differentiated into a core, mantle, and crust, and how this differentiation influenced subsequent geologic events is crucial to understanding the evolution of our Solar System. The aim of this session is to bring together expertise from the various avenues of experimental petrology-centric research within the overarching field of planetary sciences in order to spark big picture and inter-disciplinary discussions. Therefore, we encourage submissions from all areas of experimental studies including surface conditions, lower pressure/temperature conditions, and higher pressure/temperature conditions. We welcome abstracts that use experimental techniques in order to understand 1) primary differentiation processes of rocky planetary bodies, 2) primary geochemical aspects of planetary bodies such as primary crust, mantle, and core compositions, 3) secondary processes that influence the petrological evolution of Solar System bodies.
