Earth Core 
There have been significant advances in high-pressure techniques and analytical tools that provide new capabilities to investigate the physics and chemistry of the Earth's core. Static and dynamic experiments are capable of simulating conditions of Earth's, providing direct in-situ measurements of the density, sound velocity, and thermal conductivity of core materials under extreme conditions. Ex-situ characterizations of recovered high-pressure samples also become routine, providing chemical information relevant to Earth’s core. This session invites contributions from experimental and theoretical studies that may provide constraints on the chemical composition, physical properties, and evolution of the core.
