EPSC2020 Session TP4 on Impact Processes in the Solar System

Dear impact science colleagues,

We would like to announce the following exciting session at the Europlanet Science Congress (EPSC) meeting that is scheduled to take place September 27 – October 2, 2020 at the Palacio de Congresos de Granada in Granada, Spain.

Session TP4: Impact Processes in the Solar System

Conveners: Robert Luther, Elena Martellato, Jens Ormรถ

Co-conveners: Natasha Artemieva, Christopher Hamann, Isabel Herreros, Francisco Javier Rodriguez Tovar

Description: Impact processes shaped the solar system and modify planetary surfaces until today. This session aims at understanding planetary impact processes at all scales in terms of shock metamorphism, dynamical aspects, geochemical consequences, environmental effects and biotic response, and cratering chronology. Naturally, advancing our understanding of impact phenomena requires a multidisciplinary approach, which includes (but it is not limited to) observations of craters, strewn fields or airbursts, numerical modelling, laboratory experiments, geologic and structural mapping, remote sensing, petrographic analysis of impact products, and isotopic and elemental geochemistry analysis. We welcome presentations across this broad range of study and particularly encourage work that bridges the gap between the investigative methods employed in studying planetary impact processes at all scales.

The deadline for abstract submissions is May 13, 2020, 13:00 CEST.

Although other conferences have been cancelled or postponed due to the concerns about COVID-19, we hope that the general situation normalizes by late summer and that EPSC2020 will be a platform for intense and successful scientific discussions.

Please, feel free to forward this e-mail to interested impact science colleagues. We apologize for any cross-postings.

If you have any further questions please email the conveners.

We look forward to see you in Granada, Spain.

Kindest regards,

Robert, Elena, and Jens
