Prior work has found that a variety of terrestrial planetary compositions are expected to occur within known extrasolar planetary systems. However, such studies ignored the effects of giant planet migration, which is thought to be very common in extrasolar systems. Here we present calculations of the compositions of terrestrial planets that formed in dynamical simulations incorporating varying degrees of giant planet migration. We used chemical equilibrium models of the solid material present… Expand
Migration & Extra-solar Terrestrial Planets: Watering the Planets
Abstract A diverse range of terrestrial planet compositions is believed to exist within known extrasolar planetary systems, ranging from those that are relatively Earth-like to those that are highlyExpand
On the origin of elemental abundances in the terrestrial planets
Abstract The abundances of elements in the Earth and the terrestrial planets provide the initial conditions for life and clues as to the history and formation of the Solar System. We follow theExpand
Terrestrial planet formation
TLDR
Defining the role of turbulence in the early nebula is a key to understanding the growth of solids larger than meter size and the initiation of runaway growth of embryos from planetesimals ultimately leads to the Growth of large terrestrial planets via large impacts. Expand
Terrestrial Planet Formation
Advances in our understanding of terrestrial planet formation have come from a multidisciplinary approach. Studies of the ages and compositions of primitive meteorites with compositions similar toExpand
Chemical diversity of super-Earths as a consequence of formation
Recent observations of rocky super-Earths have revealed an apparent wider distribution of Fe/Mg ratios, or core to mantle ratios, than the planets in our Solar System. This study aims to understandExpand
Chemistry in an Evolving Protoplanetary Disk: Effects on Terrestrial Planet Composition
The composition of planets is largely determined by the chemical and dynamical evolution of the disk during planetesimal formation and growth. To predict the diversity of exoplanet compositions,Expand
From planetesimals to planets: volatile molecules
Context. Solar and extrasolar planets are the subject of numerous studies aiming to determine their chemical composition and internal structure. In the case of extrasolar planets, the composition isExpand
Connecting Planetary Composition with Formation
The rapid advances in observations of the different populations of exoplanets, the characterization of their host stars and the links to the properties of their planetary systems, the detailedExpand
Enhanced constraints on the interior composition and structure of terrestrial exoplanets
Exoplanet interior modelling usually makes the assumption that the elemental abundances of a planet are identical to those of its host star. Host stellar abundances are good proxies of planetaryExpand
Constraining planet structure and composition from stellar chemistry: trends in different stellar populations
The chemical composition of stars that have orbiting planets provides important clues about the frequency, architecture, and composition of exoplanet systems. We explore the possibility that starsExpand

Predicting Planets in Known Extrasolar Planetary Systems. III. Forming Terrestrial Planets
Recent results have shown that many of the known extrasolar planetary systems contain regions that are stable for both Earth-mass and Saturn-mass planets. Here we simulate the formation ofExpand
The formation and habitability of terrestrial planets in the presence of close-in giant planets
‘Hot jupiters,’ giant planets with orbits very close to their parent stars, are thought to form farther away and migrate inward via interactions with a massive gas disk. If a giant planet forms andExpand
Debris disks as signposts of terrestrial planet formation
There exists strong circumstantial evidence from their eccentric orbits that most of the known extra-solar planetary systems are the survivors of violent dynamical instabilities. Here we explore theExpand
Formation of Earth-like Planets During and After Giant Planet Migration
Close-in giant planets are thought to have formed in the cold outer regions of planetary systems and migrated inward, passing through the orbital parameter space occupied by the terrestrial planetsExpand
High-resolution simulations of the final assembly of Earth-like planets I. Terrestrial accretion and dynamics
Abstract The final stage in the formation of terrestrial planets consists of the accumulation of ∼1000-km “planetary embryos” and a swarm of billions of 1–10 km “planetesimals.” During this process,Expand

Substantial orbital migration of massive planets may occur in most extrasolar planetary systems. Since migration is likely to occur after a significant fraction of the dust has been locked up intoExpand
The effect of an early planetesimal-driven migration of the giant planets on terrestrial planet formation
The migration of the giant planets due to the scattering of planetesimals causes powerful resonances to move through the asteroid belt and the terrestrial planet region. Exactly when and how theExpand
