The Elemental Abundances (with Uncertainties) of the Most Earth-like Planet

Wang, Haiyang S; Lineweaver, Charles; Ireland, Trevor

Description

To first order, the Earth as well as other rocky planets in the Solar System and rocky exoplanets orbiting other stars, are refractory pieces of the stellar nebula out of which they formed. To estimate the chemical composition of rocky exoplanets based on their stellar hosts' elemental abundances, we need a better understanding of the devolatilization that produced the Earth. To quantify the chemical relationships between the Earth, the Sun and other bodies in the Solar System, the...[Show more]
