[S-IT18] Planetary cores: Structure, formation, and evolution

Mon. May 21, 2018 3:30 PM - 5:00 PM A11 (Tokyo Bay Makuhari Hall)

convener:Hidenori Terasaki(Graduate School of Science, Osaka University), Eiji Ohtani(Department of Earth and Planetary Materials Science, Graduate School of Science, Tohoku University), William F McDonough (共同), George Helffrich(Earth-Life Science Institute, Tokyo Institute of Technology), Chairperson:Ohtani Eiji(Tohoku University), Helffrich George(ELSI, Tokyo Institute of Technology)

There are fundamental links between the formation and evolution of planets and their satellites to that of their cores. Defining the physical and chemical properties of the cores of these terrestrial bodies are fundamental for understanding their internal structures and thermal profile. Recent advances in experimental and theoretical studies provide new insights and applications to the Earth's cores and other terrestrial bodies. Future exploration missions will obtain data on the internal structure of terrestrial planets (e.g., Mars and Mercury) and planet-satellite systems. We anticipate presentations on recent advances on the physical and chemical properties of cores and discussions regarding the latest views of their formation and evolution. We welcome contributions from mineral/rock physics, geophysics, geochemistry, geodynamics, and planetary science.

4:45 PM - 5:00 PM
