Origin and differentiation of the Earth: past to present
Start date: 14 Sep 2007
Address: The Royal Society, 6-9 Carlton House Terrace, London, United Kingdom
Organiser: Professor Andrew Jephcoat
Professor Alexander Halliday FRS
The Solar system as we know it formed some 4.5 billion years ago. Our understanding of the timescales of planet formation, the material make-up of the Earth, and deep planetary processes has improved dramatically with advances in several broad, largely separate, areas of science - cosmochemistry, extreme conditions and seismology, and the simulation of planetary growth and mixing. This meeting will bring together scientists from all disciplines in order to reconcile views on the internal structure and early chemical evolution of the Earth and the relationship with the formation of the Moon. The meeting is free to attend but pre registration is essential (Possible through the above event website link).
