LSE1/TP15Late Accretion of the Moon, Earth, and other Terrestrial Planets (co-organized)
|Convener: Gregory Michael | Co-conveners: Elena Martellato , Sabrina Schwinger , Emily Worsham|
From the last giant collisions with planetary embryos to the subsequent late bombardment by smaller bodies, this session will consider the late growth history of the terrestrial planets, over the period from 4.5 to 3.8 billion years ago. Bringing together various disciplines including geology, geophysics, geodynamics, and chemistry, we seek a better understanding of the timing and rates, chemical budget, and geodynamic implications of late accretion of the planetary bodies belonging to the inner Solar System. Contributions of both modelling and experimental results are invited and encouraged.
