[M-IS31] Planetary Volcanology

convener:Rina Noguchi(Institute of Space and Astronautical Science, Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency), Tomokatsu Morota(Department of Earth and Planetary Science, The University of Tokyo), Nobuo Geshi(Geological Survey of Japan, The National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology)

Volcanoes exist on solid planetary surfaces across the solar system. They tell insight into the interior, and the surface environment when they were formed and subsequent evolution. Recent high-resolution remote sensing data on the extraterrestrial body allows us to analyze on outcrop scales. Now we are on the stage to share the research targets beyond fields of general volcanology and planetary science. Because some geomorphological and geological environments in other planets are similar to those on Earth, research on volcanic geomorphology and geology on Earth will provide good terrestrial analogs to understand planetary volcanology. The aim of this session is to discuss the formation history and mechanism of volcanoes across the solar system.
