This session welcomes abstracts addressing all aspects of ice-giants systems including the internal structure of the ice giants, the composition, structure, and processes of and within ice-giant atmospheres, ice-giant magnetospheres, satellites, and rings, and the relationship to exoplanetary systems. The session will comprise a
combination of solicited and contributed oral and poster presentations on new, continuing, and future studies of the ice-giant systems and the connection of the ice giants to our current understanding of exoplanetary systems.
We welcome papers that
• Address the current understanding of ice-giant systems, including atmospheres, interiors, magnetospheres, rings, and satellites including Triton;
• Advance our understanding of the ice-giant systems in preparation for future exploration, both remote sensing and in situ;
• Discuss what the ice giants can tell us about solar system formation and evolution leading to a better understanding of the current structure of the solar system and its habitable zone;
• Address outstanding science questions requiring future investigations including from spacecraft, remote sensing, theoretical, and laboratory work necessary to improve our knowledge of the ice giants and their relationship to the gas giants and the solar system;
• Present concepts for missions, instruments, and investigations to make appropriate and useful measurements.
