VO Cosmochemistry and Planetary Geology

Prof. Christian Köberl

content: the class gives an overview and introduction of planetary geology/planetary science and cosmochemistry. A description of all the planets and other objects in the solar system is supplemented by a discussion of the formation of the solar system and the processes (e.g., impacts) that govern it. In the cosmochemistry part of the class we discuss the origin of the chemical elements in the universe, and their distribution in meteorites.

VO Meteorites and the Composition of the Earth

Dr. Herbert Palme

content: a) Introduction to meteorites: Different types of meteorites, their components, their elemental and isotopic composition, significance of primitive meteorites, processes in the early solar nebula relevant for the formation of primitive, chondritic meteorites. b) Composition and Evolution of the Earth: Origin and differentiation, core and crust formation, chemical and isotopic composition of the primitive upper mantle. c) Comparison of Earth and meteorites: similarities and differences in the chemical and isotopic composition of Earth and meteorites. Are chondritic meteorites building blocks of the Earth and the other terrestrial planets?

UE Exercises in Meteorites and the Composition of the Earth

Dr. Herbert Palme

content: Deepening in the matters presented during the lectures "Meteorites and the Composition of the Earth" will be achieved also with exercises that will be evaluated in terms of permanent assessment.
