[P-PS04] Results from Akatsuki and advances in Venus science
Tue. May 22, 2018 3:30 PM - 5:00 PM
Poster Hall (International Exhibition Hall7, Makuhari Messe)

More than two earth years in Venus orbit, Akatsuki has acquired a volume of high-quality data, unveiled many new phenomena and is allowing researchers to investigate the underlying mechanisms. As the data accumulate, numerical models and theories are being advanced as well. We are no doubt living in the new golden era of Venus studies. This session invites papers of the new scientific results with Akatsuki data and the latest results of theoretical and numerical works. We expect participants of this session share the latest research results through presentations and discussion.
