Event Name

EMU School 2014 - Planetary Mineralogy

Start Date 25th Aug 2014
End Date 3rd Sep 2014

Main activities

The school is focused on recent advances in our understanding of the origin and evolution of the solar system, as revealed by the surfaces and interiors of planets, satellites, asteroids and comets, and analysis of meteorites. The official language of the school will be English.
