Towards a Fuller Understanding of Icy Satellite Seafloors, Interiors, and Habitability

Fundamental research programs and thematic workshops promoting ocean world interdisciplinarity are key. Future missions to icy satellites should explicitly include objectives to characterize rock–water/high-pressure ice interfaces.
