Rocks in our Solar System
There will be a special session at the European Week of Astronomy and Space Science (EWASS 2013) to discuss "Rocks in our Solar System - bridging the gap between meteor, meteorite and asteroid studies".
EWASS 2013 is being held on 8 - 13 July 2013, Logomo Centre, Turku, Finland, and this special session will be held on Friday, 12 July. 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, registration, and conference programme is available on the EWASS 2013 main page.
