The Solar System Exploration Research Virtual Institute (SSERVI) invites all interested members of the community to participate in a virtual meeting to discuss the latest research on lunar volatiles and outstanding questions for the upcoming decade.
The past decade has seen great advances in our understanding of the lunar volatile system, but key questions regarding the origin, abundance, and distribution of lunar volatiles (including water) remain to be answered. Addressing these questions is critical to deciphering the history of the Moon and the inner solar system, assessing in situ resources available for planetary exploration, and understanding processes that may operate on many other airless solar system bodies.
Broad themes for this workshop are:
- Critical Questions for the Decade
The key questions driving your current and future research
- Lunar Volatiles and Solar System Science
The broader significance of lunar volatiles, including comparative planetology, and processes occurring on other solar system bodies
- Missions and Measurements
Concepts that would address outstanding questions for science and exploration
