EPSC–2020 Session TP4 on Impact Processes in the Solar System

Dear impact science colleagues,

In light of the global Covid-19 outbreak and in order to ensure the safety of individuals and communities, this year’s EPSC will be held on 21 September – 9 October 2020 as a virtual meeting. Recorded sessions will allow participants from different time-zones to attend presentations and to interact with presenters during the prolonged time of the meeting. For details, please see the FAQ on EPSC website: https://www.epsc2020.eu/virtual_meeting/faqs.html

We would like to invite all of you to submit a contribution to:

Session TP4: Impact Processes in the Solar System
Conveners: Robert Luther, Elena Martellato, Jens Ormö
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.

Please, use the following link for more information:  https://meetingorganizer.copernicus.org/EPSC2020/session/38503

The deadline for the abstract submission is: 24 June 2020, 13:00 CEST.

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 … at your computer screen!

Kindest regards,

Robert, Elena, and Jens
