Thermal, dynamical, and chemical processes in our early Solar System

Progress in Earth and Planetary Science welcomes submissions to the special issue on 'Thermal, dynamical, and chemical processes in our early Solar System'.

Meteorites from asteroids, the Moon and Mars, as well as lunar and terrestrial impactites contain detailed records of the early formation processes of our Solar System. Microstructures and shock-induced high pressure phases found in meteorites, lunar samples, and terrestrial impact craters provide critical constraints to the history, dynamics, and kinetics of shock events. In this SPEPS series, we address research topics related to mineral phase and micro-texture analysis, chemical and isotope compositions, and P-T-t path of terrestrial and extra-terrestrial samples.


Deadline for submissions

Submission start: 1 November 2020
