TP6General planetary dynamics
|Convener: L. Noack | Co-Conveners: G. Golabek , P. Tackley , A. Rozel|
The evolution of planetary bodies involves a variety of physical and chemical processes interacting over a very large range of scales in space and time.
With the progress of computational resources and the increasing set of experimental constraints and available mission data, more and more physics and scales can be dealt with in models of terrestrial planets. Furthermore, an increasing number of these bodies, sometimes exotic ones, are discovered in other star systems, making the understanding of thermal and chemical evolution of terrestrial planets crucial in order to understand these new bodies.
In this session we invite contributions investigating planetary dynamics via fluid-dynamic and geophysical models ranging from long-term thermal and thermochemical evolution of terrestrial planets to local and short-term geodynamical, geophysical or geochemical investigations.
