Session Introduction
8:25 AM
Anzures B. A.* Vander Kaaden K. E. McCubbin F. M. Iacovino K. Prissel K. et al.
8:35 AM
Renggli C. J.* Stojic A. N. Morlok A. Berndt J. Weber I. et al.
Sulfur Enrichment on the Surface of Mercury by Sulfidation Reactions [#1063]
We propose that the S enrichment on the surface of Mercury occurred by high-T sulfidation reactions. We present mid-IR spectra of analogue experiments.
8:45 AM
Iacovino K.* McCubbin F. M. Vander Kaaden K. E. Moore G. M.
Carbon as a Key Driver of Explosive Volcanism on Mercury [#1649]
Graphite meets magma / Explosive reaction yields / Mercury’s “red” spots.
8:55 AM
Bott N.* Thompson M. S. Vander Kaaden K. E. Loeffler M. J. McCubbin F. M.
Simulating Micrometeoroid Bombardment on Mercury: Identifying New Space Weathering Features in the Laboratory [#1696]
We present the results of our analyses of the spectral, microstructural, and chemical characteristics of Mercury analog samples irradiated by pulsed laser.
9:05 AM
Panel Q&A
9:25 AM
Rivera-Valentín E. G.* Bhiravarasu S. S. Virkki A. K. Nolan M. C. Himani T. P. et al.
Polarimetric Radar Analysis of Potentially Ice-Hosting PSRs from Mercury to the Moon [#1257]
Hermes’ aqua veil / Wade through bipolar scatter / Moon’s icy echo.
9:35 AM
Sori M. M.* Laferriere K. L. Burkman K. S. Herring J. Klidaras A. et al.
Hollows as a Source for Mercury's Polar Organics [#1103]
Mercury’s hollows are plausibly the source of carbon-rich material observed in polar deposits, explaining a key difference between ice on the Moon and Mercury.
9:45 AM
Caminiti E.* Doressoundiram A. Besse S. Wright J. Lantz C. et al.
Evolution of Volcanism on Mercury Using Spectroscopy [#2108]
We propose to study the timing and evolution of smooth plains around the Caloris basin using MESSENGER/MASCS data and laboratory spectroscopy.
9:55 AM
Leon-Dasi M.* Besse S. Doressoundiram A.
Investigating the Size and Age of Pyroclastic Deposits on Mercury Using Deep Learning [#2008]
This work applies deep learning techniques to investigate the size and age of pyroclastic deposits in Mercury, products of explosive volcanic eruptions.
10:05 AM
Panel Q&A
10:25 AM
Peterson G. A.* Lenardic A. Johnson C. L. Jellinek A. M.
The Influence of Mantle Melting and Differentiation on the Tectonic, Magnetic and Compositional Evolution of Mercury [#2154]
Forming Mercury’s crust accelerates interior cooling, explaining an ancient magnetic field, shortening structures, and the geochemical evolution.
10:35 AM
Clark J. D.* Bernhardt H. Preusker F. Klimczak C. Banks M. E. et al.
Cataloging the Ages of Shortening Landforms in Mercury's H-11 Discovery Quadrangle [#1461]
Counting the craters / Around shortening landforms / Mercury is stressed.
10:45 AM
Man B.* Rothery D. A. Balme M. R. Conway S. J. Wright J.
Preliminary Evidence for Recent Tectonic Activity on Mercury Revealed by a Global Population of Extensional Grabens [#1538]
We present the results of our global survey for extensional grabens that are associated with shortening structures.
10:55 AM
Loveless S. R.* McCullough L. R. Klimczak C. Crane K. T. Byrne P. K.
Geomorphology of Shortening Structures on Mercury Depicts No Grouping into Categories [#1695]
A multivariate statistical analysis performed on Mercury’s shortening structures finds no distinct clustering based on the structures’ observed parameters.
11:05 AM
Panel Q&A
11:25 AM
