#AGU21 — Session P003. Atmospheric Dynamics and Astro/geo-physical Modeling Studies of Habitable Ocean Worlds, Moons, and Atmospheres Near and Far

Dear Colleagues,

We invite everyone with interest in geophysical and astrophysical fluid dynamics to submit abstracts for #AGU21 to the following session:

Session P003. Atmospheric Dynamics and Astro/geo-physical Modeling Studies of Habitable Ocean Worlds, Moons, and Atmospheres Near and Far

The realm of Geophysical and Astrophysical Fluid Dynamics (GAFD) has significantly expanded in phase space to include a wide variety of physical regimes. Models originally developed for phenomena on Earth and across the solar system are now being applied to exoplanets across vast parameter regimes. Atmospheric circulation models are being tested against new observational constraints, as from the Juno mission. On the other extreme of the Reynolds number, modeling convection in ice shells offer explanations for many geological features on the surfaces of potentially habitable ocean worlds across the solar system. In addition, tools from the astrophysical context are now being applied to planetary science problems. This session aims to bring together a wide cross-section of these diverse communities that use a variety of practices and state-of-the-art methods. We expect an engaging session that focuses on new results in exoplanetary and solar system science, as well as computational methodology.

AGU does not allow for sessions that solely honor individuals, but the science in this session will represent recent progress on the broad research topics studied by Adam Showman (1968–2020) during his career.

The abstract submission deadline is August 4th, and the link to submit abstracts to this session is https://agu.confex.com/agu/fm21/prelim.cgi/Session/122739.

AGU will be held as a hybrid event in person in New Orleans, LA, USA, and online everywhere from December 13–17, 2021.

Please contact Tad Komacek (tkomacek@uchicago.edu) if you have any questions or would like further information about the session.

Sincerely,

Jonathan Fortney, Yohai Kaspi, Tad Komacek, and Kunio Sayanagi
