Committee on comparative planetology



The International Union of Geological Sciences (IUGS) has formed an Advisory Committee on Comparative Planetology. The committee advises the IUGS on research initiatives in planetary studies and provides IUGS representation to other scientific organizations with interests in planetary geoscience. Major goals are to stimulate research in comparative planetology and promote communication of these research results to the general geoscience community. Particular emphasis is being placed on the application of planetary studies to problems in terrestrial geology.
