AGU SESSION PS3594: THE SOLAR SYSTEM COLLAPSING DISC – EVIDENCE FROM COMETS, METEORITES AND GIANT PLANET ATMOSPHERES

For several decades evaluations of the composition of meteorites, comets and giant planet atmospheres have provided clues to the origin and evolution of the solar system. When combined with theories on dynamics and composition of the collapsing disc, a picture of the
history of the solar system unfolds. Several recent NASA and ESA missions, including Rosetta, JUNO, Dawn and New Horizons will soon add to constraints on the origin and evolution of our solar system.  Furthermore, recent laboratory studies provide important results for evaluation of these measurements. The goal of this session is to put previous work and upcoming measurements into the broader context of solar system formation and evolution. This session is open to papers on comet, meteorite and giant planet atmosphere contributions to understanding solar system origins, laboratory studies related to the
topic, and theoretical studies of the dynamical and chemical evolution of the collapsing disc.

The abstract deadline for all submissions is 6 August 23:59 EDT/03:59 +1 GMT and no abstracts will be accepted after this date.
