We invite abstracts for the following session at the 2019 AGU Fall Meeting in San Francisco, CA, December 9-13, 2019:

P005: Carbon Across the Solar System

Recent results ranging from the Kuiper Belt, the Pluto system, the Saturn system, other locations beyond ~5 AU, all the way to Mercury in the inner Solar System, and nearly all points in between, raise questions about the state of carbon in the Solar System: how do carbonaceous compounds become weathered in response to thermal processes and irradiation? How do we recognize carbon compounds and their various weathering products? The syntheses of these results improve our scientific understanding of the role of carbon in the Solar System, how it evolves and how to recognize it. The carbonaceous near-Earth asteroids 162173 Ryugu and 101955 Bennu are now being visited and sampled; the analyses of these samples will provide context for the presence of carbon. In this session, abstracts covering observational, laboratory and modeling work related to carbon and carbonaceous species on Solar System bodies are welcome.

The deadline for abstract submissions is Wednesday, 31 July at 23:59 EDT
