Presented By:

Dr. Caitlin Ahrens Ph.D.

NASA Postdoctoral Program Fellow

Goddard Space Flight Center




Abstract: How is studying ice in the solar system so exciting? We’ll explore the marvelous geologic wonders of the solar system by deep diving into how ice behaves to make mountains, glaciers, and volcanoes! We’ll also look at the efforts of ice research from models to laboratory experiments, and what all we still need to do to understand how ice forms these geologic structures for future mission objectives!


This Course Has Been Approved for New York State 1 PDH Credit


  • Attendees are asked to log in 5 minutes prior to the start of the webinar to allow for attendance.
  • If you paid for a PDH credit certificate of completion it will be provided via email following verification of attendance. 
  • The LIAPG will also forward attendance records to the NYSCPG for record keeping purposes.


*Bio: Dr. Ahrens received her B.S. in Physics/Astrophysics and Geology from West Virginia University in 2015, and a Ph.D. in Space and Planetary Science at the University of Arkansas in 2020.


Dr. Ahrens is currently a NASA Postdoctoral Program Fellow at the Goddard Space Flight Center, advised by Dr. Noah Petro. She is also a member of the Diviner Science Team. In 2018, Dr. Ahrens received the Ten Outstanding Young Americans award (presented by the Jaycees) for her efforts in science communication and outreach.


Dr. Ahrens' research involves remote sensing of icy surfaces and volatile interactions, including permanently shadowed craters at the lunar poles, focusing on the composition and thermodynamics of ices. Dr. Ahrens' specific expertise focuses on modeling of thermal phases of ices, and applications to geomorphological and geophysical data on icy surfaces, including cryovolcanism. Dr. Ahrens also works on a number of planetary volcanism projects, including lava flow morphology, caldera formation, and rheology, on Mars, Ceres, Titan, and Pluto.


Dr. Ahrens is currently applying LRO Diviner data with a myriad of other remote sensing data to investigate the volatiles at the lunar surface and lunar volcanism.
