Science Return from In Situ Probes in the Atmospheres of the Ice Giants

We describe the main scientific goals that can be addressed uniquely by direct probes into the atmospheres of Uranus and Neptune. In situ probes would focus on key measurements of atmospheric composition, structure, and dynamics. They would provide insight into the formation of the solar system, and the processes at play in planetary atmospheres.
