PS3.5 EDI

Remarkable advancements have been achieved in recent years using orbital and surface instruments on planetary bodies. Spectrometers have visited several planets and small bodies throughout the solar system, covering a large spectral domain. In combination with surface imagery, spectroscopy proved to be very powerful to understand the geologic history of those bodies. This session aims to foster discussion of the latest techniques and discoveries on the surface composition and processes of planetary bodies for recent and upcoming missions.
