Volcanism and tectonism are two of the most ubiquitous processes at work in the Solar System, shaping substantially the surfaces of worlds as diverse as the terrestrial planets, main-belt asteroids, and icy satellites. With orbital data and samples from the lunar surface, chronology and geochemistry results from the Moon have provided important sources of knowledge to understand the evolution of small planetary bodies.

Through a combination of solicited and contributed presentations, this session will host observational, analytical, theoretical, and analogue fieldwork research into any aspect of planetary volcanic and tectonic activity. We welcome submissions that compare landforms and processes on multiple bodies, geochemical and chronological data from planetary material, and how lessons from specific studies can be applied to understanding volcanism and tectonism across the Solar System.
