Workshop on Experimental Cosmochemisty 2016
June 26 (Sun) 8:30 am – 5:30 pm / Pacifico Yokohama
Laboratory experiments are the key to place quantitative constraints on physical and chemical conditions and timescales of material evolution in the Galaxy and the Solar System. We will focus on recent results on experimental cosmochemistry, development of new experimental and analytical techniques, and application to cosmochemistry.
The workshop will comprize four focused sessions: 1. Particle irradiation in space: Dust destruction in the ISM and space weathering on air-less bodies, 2. Chemistry of ice and organic matter in molecular clouds, protoplanetary disks, and small bodies, 3. Mineral reactions in protoplanetary disks, and 4. Innovative instrumentation for analysis of extraterrestrial materials. Each session includes one or two keynote lectures, three contributed talks and discussion time. A poster session will also be held.
