EPSC 2022 “TP14 Session”: Impact Processes in the Solar System

Impact Processes in the Solar System
Session TP14

Conveners: Robert Luther, Elena Martellato, Isabel Herreros, Jens Ormö, Francisco Javier Rodriguez-Tovar, Christopher Hamann, Chrysa Avdellidou

Description: Impact processes shaped the solar system and modify planetary surfaces and small bodies until today. Impacts also have a technical application for planetary defense, exemplified by the joint ESA/NASA Asteroid Impact and Deflection Assessment (AIDA) collaboration and the scheduled impact of NASA’s DART spacecraft onto Dimorphos in September this year.

We welcome presentations across this broad range of studies about natural or artificial impact collision phenomena on planetary and small bodies. In particular, we encourage work that bridges the gap between the investigative methods employed in studying planetary impact processes at all scales.

The deadline for the abstract submission is: May 18, 2022, 13:00 CEST.

In contrast to the previous two years, the conference is planned as an in-person meeting, and we are looking forward to have great scientific discussions in place. After the long time of virtual conferences, this is one of the first chances to meet again. And it is also the last chance to present pre-impact results for the DART mission, which is going to encounter Dimorphos on the September 26. If necessary, a limited amount of bursaries is available upon application for e.g., for students/early career scientists or scientists from underrepresented countries. 

If you have any further questions please email the conveners.

We look forward to see you in Granada, Spain.

Kindest regards,
Robert, Elena, Isabel, Jens, Francisco, Christopher & Chrysa
