Planetary Magnetism and Core Processes

The core is the most active and extreme region in planetary interiors. Global magnetic fields observed at or above planetary surfaces reflect the turbulent dynamics of the liquid iron core and the couplings between the core, the solid mantle, and perhaps a solid inner core. The core's dynamic evolution results from the combination of its thermal, chemical, and transport properties, which manifest in distinct magnetic and seismic structures and affect the thermal and structural evolution of the whole planet. Many of these properties, and their interplay, are yet to be understood. Further progress requires observations, theory, experiments and material properties at extreme conditions. This session welcomes contributions from all disciplines in a common effort to advance the understanding of planetary cores.
