Towards Other Earths III: from Solar System to Exoplanets

Atmosphere, Interior, formation and evolution of planets and planetary systems. The Solar System Planets and Exoplanets communities aim at answering similar questions, but seldom interact due to the different datasets they have access to.
Nevertheless, exchanges between these two communities are bringing essential contributions to Planetary Science: migration theories and impact of dynamical interactions on planet formation are just a few examples.

Conference Poster (A3)

Our main goal is to foster future collaborations between these two communities by confer about a non-exhaustive list of science questions:
  • What do we learn from terrestrial planets in the Solar System about the diversity of Super-Earths internal structure and atmospheres?
  • What are the insights and context that Super-Earths population provide regarding the formation and history of the rocky planets in the Solar System?
  • What do we learn from Uranus and Neptune about the formation, structure and composition of ice-giants planets?
  • What do we know about ice-giant exoplanet atmospheres and can it help us understand the composition of the deep atmosphere of Uranus and Neptune?
  • What can the analysis of evaporating hot Jupiter tell us about the deep atmosphere composition of Jupiter and Saturn?
  • What do we learn from Cassini and Juno about the composition and formation of exoplanetary gas giant?
  • What can we learn from the distribution of known exoplanets about the population of undetected Solar System analogs?
  • Can the architecture of exoplanetary systems teach us more about the history of the Solar System?
  • How the future missions and instruments (PLATO, ARIEL, JUICE, ExoMars, …) will change our understanding of planetary sciences?

We aim to discuss how the detailed and in situ datasets from Solar System planets can inform the often under constrained exoplanetary models. We will try to uncover how the diversity and large sample offered by exoplanets can put in context and inform our understanding of Solar System planets, focusing on each of these categories:
1. Super-Earths, Mercury, Venus, Mars and Earth
2. Ice giants, Uranus and Neptune
3. Gas giants, Jupiter and Saturn
4. Planetary System architecture
