9/30/2016 - Origins of Gas Giant Compositions: The Role of Disk Location and Dynamics


12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
Geology 3814

Presented By:
Ana Piso - UCLA


The composition of planets is determined by and tightly linked to the composition of the protoplanetary disk in which they form. In the first part of my talk, I will discuss giant planet formation through core accretion. In the second part, I will explore how the composition and evolution of protoplanetary disks may affect the formation and chemical composition of giant planets.
