Dynamics of Planets and Atmospheres
How does life interact with water, which is widespread across the Universe? How does life begin and evolve through its interaction with atmospheric, surface, and subsurface nutrient pathways?
Dynamics of Planets and Atmospheres seeks to quantify habitability through new investigations into planetary dynamics, atmospheres and hydrospheres, and conduct complementary research into Earth’s surface and interior processes and that of observable exoplanets.
