COST Action CM 0805 : The chemical cosmos - wg 3
The Chemical Cosmos: Understanding Chemistry in Astronomical Environments
The Action aims to provide new insights into the dynamics of the chemical reactions leading to molecular synthesis under such conditions and reveal how these are influenced by the ambient temperature and pressure.
Special attention will also be given to the study of the novel surface chemistry prevalent on interstellar medium dust grains and planetary surfaces.
The Action also aims to combine such laboratory data with complementary chemical models to allow a fuller interpretation of observational data.
More information on the COST programme :
- the general COST site for the entire action
- The Chemical Cosmos: Understanding Chemistry in Astronomic Environments
The main objective of this Action is to study chemical processes relevant to the physical conditions encountered in the interstellar medium, and on the surface and in the atmospheres of planetary bodies.
- WG-3 specializes in chemistry in the planetary systems.
- This site allows you first to register to the WG-3 specific action database which keeps your data to register to the group itself and to the various thematic meetings organised by WG-3, the first one being is carbon in the solar systems from December 6 to December 8, 2010. The second is in Barcelona from September 21 to 23,2011.The third is in Perugia on Oxygen in September 2012.
