Down the icy road: The journey of ices from interstellar clouds to planetary systems

Session ID: 102214
Session Description:
Ices are ubiquitous in the Universe, from icy bodies in our Solar System to interstellar clouds and planet-forming disks. These ices represent a large reservoir of C, H, O, and N-bearing volatile compounds that can already form at the pre-stellar stage, be inherited, and evolve around protostars and planetary systems. Chemistry on and in ices results in complex molecules formation, including some building blocks of life.

This session will be dedicated to discussing the journey of ices from the earliest phases of star formation to planet-forming disks and outer Solar System objects. It will highlight the crucial role of observations, experiments, theoretical calculations, and models in understanding the various stages of the journey.

We seek to bridge the planetary science and astrochemistry communities and present a common understanding of ices physical and chemical evolution. In addition to ice-focused papers, submission of studies at the ice-gas or ice-dust interface is encouraged.
