  Information - PS5.5/MPRG06 Planetary Magnetism (co-organized by MPRG)

Event Information
The wealth of magnetic field data obtained around Mars in the last years has triggered renewed interest in the study of planetary magnetism. New measurements are coming from Venus and from Saturnian system, and more mission are planned, in particular towards Mercury.

This session will focus on two complementary aspects of planetary magnetism:
1) Interpretation of magnetic anomalies measured around the Moon, planets and asteroids.
2) Magnetic properties of extraterrestrial materials, including specific magnetization and demagnetization processes.
3) Internal and external magnetic field interactions.
One important objective of the session is to create more intereaction between the scientific communities working on these 3 points.

Contributions focused on planetary magnetic field and anomalies, and magnetic properties of extraterrestrial materials (lunar rocks, meteorites) and terrestrial or synthetic analogues are welcomed.
