    Session EP002: Aeolian Processes on Earth and Other Planetary Bodies.

    Dear colleagues, 

    Please consider submitting an abstract to our session on "Aeolian Processes on Earth and Other Planetary Bodies" at the AGU Fall meeting. https://agu.confex.com/agu/fm20/prelim.cgi/Session/102559 

    Aeolian processes shape landscapes throughout our Solar System. Spacecraft missions continue to reveal evidence of past and present aeolian activity on bodies other than Earth: from dust devils and aeolian sedimentary rock strata on Mars to dunes on Titan and Pluto. Earth-based observations, experiments, and theories have provided the basis for assessing and predicting aeolian processes on other planetary surfaces. However, integrating discoveries from Earth and planetary aeolian studies is essential for understanding and interpreting aeolian processes across a broad range of planetary atmospheres and landscapes. Existing models are challenged by rare but valuable planetary meteorological and aeolian datasets, resulting in new understanding of fundamental aeolian processes. 

    This session welcomes presentations on work that aims to increase our overall understanding of modern and ancient aeolian processes across our Solar System. Submissions that focus on integrating planetary and terrestrial knowledge, or that explore new ideas, instruments, and methodologies, are especially encouraged.

    The AGU Fall Meeting abstract deadline is July 29th.

    Convenors: Claire E. Newman (Aeolis Research), Christy Swann (U.S. Naval Research Laboratory), Serina Diniega (NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory, California Institute of Technology), Ryan Ewing (Texas A&M)
