#EGU22 session in the spotlight: Interior-Surface-Atmosphere Volatile Exchange on Earth and Other Terrestrial (Exo)planets

The #EGU22 abstract submission deadline is approaching surprisingly fast – only 6 weeks are left until you have to decide to which of our many great sessions you want to submit your abstract! But which session will be the best one to fit your research? We will try to help you make this decision by highlighting some of our GMPV sessions within the next weeks!

Today in the spotlight, session PS6.1Interior-Surface-Atmosphere Volatile Exchange on Earth and Other Terrestrial (Exo)planets“. This interdisciplinary session is organized by an enthusiastic ECR team consisting of Kaustubh Hakim, Daniel Kitzmann, Meng Tian, RJ Graham and Dennis Höning and is definitely a must-see if you are interested in volatiles on Earth or other planets!

The conveners say:

Remote measurements of atmospheric molecules (e.g., CO2, H2O, SO2) provide first insights into the conditions on the surface of the planet. The exchange of volatiles (e.g., C, H, S) between the atmosphere, surface and interior reservoirs or their loss is dependent on chemical and physical processes operating on the planet. Earth, Venus, Mars and terrestrial exoplanets offer plenty to learn about the fate of volatiles in planetary atmospheres. Without advancements in experiments and modelling of such processes, it is difficult to interpret observational data.

We are convening this session to bring together researchers in Earth, planetary and exoplanet science, especially early-career researchers (ECRs), working on the processes controlling the fate of key volatiles. We expect the session to generate intellectually stimulating discussions on a wide range of topics. These topics include but are not limited to geochemical cycles, surface lithology, tectonic regimes, outgassing, mantle redox states, ridge and arc volcanism, subduction zones, water-rock interactions, weathering, habitable zone, climate science, atmospheric structure and composition.

If you are working on any aspect of volatiles in a planetary context, we encourage you to submit your abstract to this session which is convened by ECRs for ECRs
