Venus Surface and Atmosphere Conference
January 30, 2023 @ 8:00 am - February 1, 2023 @ 5:00 pm
Conference Location and Dates
We are happy to announce the Venus Surface and Atmosphere Conference scheduled for January 30–February 1, 2023, in Boulder, Colorado. The conference format will be hybrid with in-person and virtual attendance opportunities.
Purpose and Scope
The LPI’s Venus Science Initiative aims to consolidate our understanding of Venus, explore new hypotheses, and encourage innovative ways to exploit measurements from the upcoming armada of spacecraft that will target Venus in the next decade.
The focus of the Venus Surface and Atmosphere Conference, the second in the LPI’s Venus Science Initiative, is the state of Venus’ current climate due to processes occurring in the atmosphere and the surface at all altitudes from approximately 120 km above the surface, including processes occurring in the surface-atmosphere boundary. The conference topics include volcanism, tectonism, surface weathering, surface mineralogy, atmospheric dynamics, composition and structure, and cloud microphysics. Presentations providing updates on future missions and instrument concepts (selected and pre-proposed) and modeling activity that will advance our understanding of the conference themes are welcomed and encouraged. The conference will provide a forum for scientific anticipation of coming spacecraft data.
