Topics in Planetary Science

The goal of the course is discuss topics in planetary sciences, which were not covered in the general planetary science courses. The course also aims at training the student’s ability to critically evaluate research papers, to summarize the findings concisely in an oral presentation, and to discuss these in the group.

The course will be based on reading of research papers. Themes can vary from year to year and will cover planetary geophysics, geochemistry and the dynamical evolution of planetary bodies. The format of the course will be centered on short lectures introducing a theme, followed by a presentation of one or more papers by a student or group of students and an open discussion of the topic.
