Scope Volcanoes exist on solid planetary surfaces across the solar system. They tell not only volcanism itself, but also tectonic/internal activity and the surface environment when they were formed and subsequent evolution. Recent high-resolution remote sensing data on extraterrestrial bodies allows us to analyze on outcrop scales. Now we are on the stage to share the research targets beyond the fields of general volcanology and planetary science. Because some geomorphological and geological environments in other planets are similar to those on Earth, research on volcanic geomorphology and geology on Earth will provide good terrestrial analogues to understand planetary volcanology. The aim of this session is to discuss the formation history and mechanism of volcanoes across the solar system.
