EPSC-DPS Joint Meeting 2019
Centre International de Conférences de Genève (CICG) | Geneva | Switzerland
15–20 September 2019
Geneva | Switzerland
15–20 September 2019



This session is devoted to the development of models (formal descriptions of physical phenomena), experiments (on ground and in micro-gravity), and mathematical simulations (computational methods and algorithms of solution) related to the Small Bodies (comets, KBOs, rings, asteroids, meteorites, dust, gravitational aggregates), their formation and evolution, and the instruments of their exploration.

This session will include the introduction and discussion of new and/or existing models, experimental techniques, computational methods, and the results of analytical,experimental and numerical analysis (with respect to computational methods and algorithms of solution) of various astrophysical phenomena: (i) dusty gas cometary atmospheres; (ii) volcanic activity on icy satellites (e.g. Enceladus and Io); (iii) planetary body formation (e.g. via pebbles growth), and planetesimal dynamics; (iv) investigations on granular systems applicable to the study of small bodies as gravitational aggregates, regolith surfaces, and sample-return missions; etc.

The session will as well include the simulation of instrument transfer functions (e.g. radiative transfer).

Abstracts are solicited relevant to any aspect of the above described studies and modelling.
