From dust to terrestrial planets : proceedings of an ISSI Workshop, 15-19 February 1999, Bern, Switzerland by W Benz( Book )

14 editions published between 2000 and 2012 in English and held by 120 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume gives a comprehensive and integrated overview of current knowledge and understanding of the processes occurring during the first 100 million years of the solar system, when the terrestrial planets formed. It is the result of a workshop at ISSI, where planetary scientists, astrophysicists, and cosmochemists exchanged their data, interpretations, and ideas on theoretical models. <br/> The book provides a broad synthesis of ground- and space-based observations, laboratory experiments, numerical simulations, and theoretical considerations dealing with the collapse of molecular clouds to proto-planetary disks and their subsequent evolution. Emphasis is given to the evolution of the disk and the relevant timescales characterizing the underlying (magnetohydro)dynamical, (astro)physical, and (geo)chemical processes responsible for the current distribution and composition of the material in the solar system. Papers in this volume cover the topics of proto-solar disk formation and evolution, formation of the most original compounds and first solids and their subsequent accretion into planetesimals, planetary embryos, and ultimately into planets. <br/> The book is intended to provide scientists in space physics and geophysical research with an up-to-date status report on current understanding of terrestrial planet formation, and also to serve the advanced graduate student with introductory material on this active field of research

"In the last two decades of the 20th century, we obtained our first detailed look at a cometary nucleus and detected objects in the Kuiper-Edgeworth Belt for the first time. These two observations have resulted in a major leap forward in our understanding of small bodies in our Solar System. Combined with powerful new approaches to the study of Solar System dynamics, progress within the last 20 years has been staggering. This book attempts to synthesize these new findings in a manner which is readable for new graduate students in the field."--book jacket

Modèles de synthèses de populations planétaires avec cavité magnétique et effets de marées stellaires by Nahuel Cabral( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this thesis, we have been interested on the effects of the magnetic cavity and the stellar tides in synthetic planet population. The magnetic cavity is thought be important at the formation phase since it can truncates the gaseous disk and potentially stops the inward migration of planets (Lin et al. 1995). In this work we modified the standard radial viscous equation in order to take into account the effect of the magnetic torque on the gaseous disk (Armitage et al. 1999). Moreover, the stellar tides have been included in an analytical way as in (Bénitez-Llambay et al. 2011). For this work, we used the planetary model of Bern (Mordasini et al. 2012) at which we included both effects. The end of the thesis compare the synthetic orbital distribution with the orbital distribution observed by Kepler (Howard et al. 2012).Finally, a last chapter treats a topic different than the rest of the thesis. We tested the so called pebble mechanism (Ormel&Klahr2010) in the planetary formation model of Bern. So far, this chapter is a first step to a more complete model. However, we show that the numerical implementation is working well
