Session PS8.1/BG8.2, co-organized by the Planetary Sciences and the Biogeosciences sections
“Evolution of planetary habitability: conditions for the origin of life on Earth and beyond Earth” (co-organized)

Convener: Emmanuelle J. Javaux
Co-Conveners: Doris Breuer , Agustin Chicarro , Veronique Dehant , Özgür Karatekin , Helmut Lammer , Lena Noack , Tilman Spohn , Frances Westall , Doris Breuer , Ann Carine Vandaele

The aim of this session is to discuss the possible conditions and habitat for the origin and persistence of life in the solar system and beyond with emphasis on Earth, terrestrial planets, icy moons and exoplanets. We are interested in the conditions for habitability, the signatures of life, and the possible links between habitability and the evolution of planetary reservoirs (atmosphere, geosphere, hydrosphere, interior). We invite contributions of relevance to the topic from all fields of Planetary Sciences and Biogeoscience including e.g., formation and structure of planetary bodies in the habitable zone, interior dynamics (convection, plate tectonics, and magnetic field), atmospheres, impacts and planetary evolution, geological evidence on Martian habitability, biogeochemical interactions, extremophiles and the limits of life, preservation and detection of biosignatures, mission concepts for exploration of planetary habitability.

Confirmed invited speakers: Tilman Spohn (German Aerospace Center (DLR)); Véronique Dehant (Royal Observatory of Belgium), Frances Westall (Centre de Biophysique Moléculaire CNRS Orléans, President of EANA)

The abstract submission deadline is 16 January 2014, 13:00 CET (http://meetingorganizer.copernicus.org/EGU2014/session/14465). In case you would like to apply for financial support, please submit an application no later than 29 November 2013.
