Plenary: Ocean Worlds
This session seeks to open cross-divisional conversations between scientists studying our ocean on Earth and oceans on other parts of the Solar System, and to identify areas of collaboration and mutual interest.
Chairs: Laura Lorenzoni (NASA Headquarters Science Mission Directorate), Ashley Kleinman (NASA Headquarters Science Mission Directorate), Chris German (Woods Hole Oceanographic Inst.), Alison Murray (Univ. Nevada, Reno), Paula Bontempi (Univ. Rhode Island), Adam Martiny (Univ. California, Irvine)
Analogs – How are we using our Earth as analog for ocean worlds, based on our understanding of Earth’s ocean system processes? How is this advancing our own understanding of Earth?
Technology – What are we currently using to look at ocean worlds? What have we done on Earth that could translate to other moons? This topic includes space-based and other types of technology.
Life Detection in Ocean Worlds – How can we detect life signatures in other worlds? What have we learned about life in extreme environments on Earth? How does this help us understand the origin of life on Earth?
