  Information - PS4.0 Outer planets and satellites

Event Information
This session will include solicited, contributed and poster papers with
the focus on observations from the earth and spacecraft, together with
papers on theoretical interpretations, results of modelling and pertinent
laboratory measurements. Neutral atmospheres and their relationship to
surface, interior and magnetospheres of the outer planetary systems will
be emphasized. Presentations on new results from the Cassini-Huygens and
Galileo missions and from earth-based observations will receive special

Objects included in the session are the giant planets, Titan, Triton,
Enceladus, Galilean satellites with atmospheres and Pluto. Comparative
planetology approach is encouraged, where applicable.

Abstracts on rings and icy satellites without atmosphere should be
sent to Session PS3.1.
