AGU SESSION V007 – ACCRETIONARY AND PLANETARY DIFFERENTIATION PROCESSES AS RECORDED IN EARLY EARTH AND PLANETARY MATERIALS

Session 1785
Session Description:

This session (V007 ID#1785) invites contributions based on geophysical models and geochemical records in terrestrial and planetary materials that will increase our understanding of early Earth and planetary evolution. We encourage contributions on topics such as: constraints on the nature of building blocks of terrestrial planets; timing and nature of early differentiation of the silicate Earth; consequences of Moon formation and late accretion for the development of the major terrestrial and lunar reservoirs; processes and timescales for the generation and survival of mantle heterogeneities; and implications of
the composition of planetary materials for models of the chemical evolution of the Earth.
