PL1: Small bodies in Our Solar System

Session Organisers:

Colin Snodgrass (Max Planck Institute for Solar System Research, Germany), S.C. Lowry (University of Kent, UK), S. Green (Open University, UK)


This session will bring together researchers on Solar System minor bodies from various disciplines (spacecraft missions, laboratory based, observations and theory). The session will be divided into topics based on different populations, with a mix of talks from different disciplines within each, to encourage discussion between these fields. Likely topics will be on Main Belt asteroids, Near Earth Objects, Comets and Outer Solar System bodies. We expect talks to cover results from the Dawn, Rosetta and Stardust missions; observations of all minor body populations (including results from the Herschel space telescope); meteorites, meteors and links with their parent bodies; theoretical/computational/experimental results on solar system formation and evolution; experimental and instrumentation work related to spacecraft missions.
