The session “Martian dust and clouds: from lab to space” (TP6) proposed by the RoadMap consortium, has been officially accepted by the Europlanet Science Congress organizers. EPSC will be held in Granada (Spain) from 18 to 23 September 2022.
Martian dust and clouds: from lab to space
Dust and clouds are critical elements in the Martian atmosphere. They control the radiative budget, have an impact on the composition, and affect its dynamical processes.
The aim of this session is to bring together scientists involved in modelling and observing Martian dust and clouds, from the lab to the analysis of space data. We will consider presentations on observations, field and laboratory experiments covering different aspects of dust and clouds, such as aeolian processes, dust lifting, sedimentation, scavenging, nucleation, aggregation, optical properties including scattering characterization, etc., but also on modelling of these processes from the perspective of implementation in radiative transfer codes or Global Circulation models.
