Planet Characterization in the Solar System and the Galaxy Workshop

Houston, TX/Virtual

Planet Characterization in the Solar System and the Galaxy Workshop

The diversity of planets and planetary types has exploded since the first discoveries of exoplanets and shows no signs of abating as the total population of known planets in our system and others has grown from 9 planets to (soon) 9,000. We will convene to describe, discuss, and debate the various planet classification schemes, considering the needs of both astrophysics and planetary science, geophysics, ocean worlds studies, atmospheric studies, magnetospheric studies, and more, with the goal of informed scientific debate, education, and progress toward consensus classification schemes.

Important: To be added to the mailing list to receive additional information about this workshop, submit an indication of interest.
