European Week of Astronomy and Space Science - EWASS 2013

8 - 13 July 2013, Logomo Centre, Turku, Finland

 

Special Session Sp11 (Friday, July 12, 2013)

 

Rocks in our Solar System - bridging the gap between meteor, meteorite and asteroid studies

 

Conveners:

Tomas Kohout

Maria Gritsevich

 

Scope:

The session will bring together scientists working on all aspects of Solar System rocky material properties. The topic includes laboratory analysis of meteorites and cosmic dust as well as observations and modeling of both meteoroids and asteroids. The contributions bridging the gap between properties of meteors, meteorites and asteroids are highly welcome.

The session will also focus on recent Chelyabinsk fireball / meteorite fall event in order to put together knowledge acquired from studies of fireball trajectory, orbital analysis, and recovered meteorites.

 

Abstract submission:

Abstract submission, registration, and conference programme is available on EWASS 2013 main page.
