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.
