P031:
Planetary Thermophysics





Session ID#: 25891

Session Description:
Planetary surface and subsurface temperature measurements are greatly contributing to the telescopic and robotic exploration of the Solar System. They are often analyzed in conjunction with numerical models or laboratory experiments, and shed light on fundamental questions related to regolith formation and maturation, presence/stability of volatiles, habitability, interactions with atmospheres, heat flow and deep structures, surface changes, etc. This session aims at sharing recent results stemming from these efforts, and welcomes all contributions focused on planetary geological/geophysical processes constrained through the lens of thermophysics. Presentations relevant to minor bodies, satellites, and (exo)planets based on data analysis, numerical modeling, or laboratory experiments are encouraged.
