Division on Planetary and Solar System Sciences (PS)

President: Stephanie C. Werner, ps@egu.eu
Deputy President: Özgür Karatekin, ozgur.karatekin@oma.be

The aim of the Planetary & Solar System Sciences Division of the EGU is the promotion of all fields of planetary sciences, ground-based and space mission exploration of the solar system and beyond,  and related models. PS covers papers on both fundamental and applied topics regarding the exploration of the Solar System. The Division, devoted to Science applications in Space, hosts interdisciplinary contributions on the origins and the evolution of the Solar System and the exoplanetary Systems, as well as ideas for future exploration while largely contributing to outreach and educational activities for all audiences.

Workshop for early career scientists!

In the framework of a two days workshop entitled "Space Exploration - Pushing the Frontiers", we will create an exhibition on planetary exploration. The exhibition will travel with the participants to be shown at their university/institution. In groups, we will develop different stations of the exhibition concerning the different planetary bodies, the according space missions, the future plans etc. We imagine the exhibition consisting of posters, videos, multimedia and texts, but there is no limit to the creativity of the participants. Share your knowledge in your area of expertise with other young space scientists, and with laymen, children and colleagues.

Current issue of the EGU newsletter

In early and mid-September, strong earthquakes hit Mexico causing widespread damage and casualties. On the EGU blog, GeoLog, we rounded up the available scientific information on the earthquakes, including commentary by EGU seismologists. Meanwhile, in Bali, Indonesia, authorities have evacuated areas around Agung Volcano, leading to the displacement of over 75,000 people. On the new Geochemistry, Mineralogy, Petrology & Volcanology blog, GMPV Division President Mike Burton writes about the ongoing threat of an eruption at Agung.

This week, with the deadline for session proposals now closed, the EGU Programme Committee is meeting to finalise the session programme for the EGU 2018 General Assembly. Very soon, you’ll be able to start submitting abstracts to the meeting. If you’d like to apply for funding to attend the General Assembly, beware that you’ll have to submit your abstract by 1 December. If you know a school teacher interested in learning more about Earth sciences directly from researchers, make sure to let them know about the next Geosciences Information For Teachers workshop, taking place at the EGU 2018 General Assembly.
