V034:
Using Experimental Petrology to Place Geochemical, Mineralogical, and Petrological Constraints on Planetary Bodies





Session ID#: 26894

Session Description:
Understanding the geochemistry, mineralogy, and petrology across the rocky planetary bodies in our Solar System is imperative to discerning the thermal and magmatic evolution of these rocky planetary bodies including Mercury, Venus, Earth, the Moon, and Mars as well as asteroid belt objects. The aim of this session is to bring together expertise from the various avenues of experimental petrology-centric research within the overarching field of planetary sciences in order to spark big picture and inter-disciplinary discussions. Therefore, we encourage submissions from all areas of experimental studies including surface conditions (1-bar), lower pressure/temperature conditions, and higher pressure/temperature conditions. We particularly welcome contributions which showcase new results/hypotheses/models that help to address the (1) accretion and differentiation of rocky planetary bodies, (2) thermal and magmatic evolution of rocky planetary bodies as well as secondary volcanic processes, and (3) surficial and/or resurfacing processes or rocky objects in our Solar System.
