Abstract Building models capable of successfully matching the Terrestrial Planet's basic orbital and physical properties has proven difficult. Meanwhile, improved estimates of the nature of

Dynamical Avenues for Mercury’s Origin. II. In Situ Formation in the Inner Terrestrial Disk

Modern terrestrial-planet formation models are highly successful at consistently generating planets with masses and orbits analogous to those of Earth and Venus. In stark contrast to classic

Realistic collisional water transport during terrestrial planet formation

Context. According to the latest theoretical and isotopic evidence, Earth’s water content originates mainly from today’s asteroid belt region, or at least from the same precursor material. This

Lunar and terrestrial planet formation in the Grand Tack scenario

It is concluded that the protoplanetary disc at the beginning of the giant impact phase must have had most of its mass in Mars-sized embryos and only a small fraction of the total disc mass in the planetesimal population, and was caused most likely by an object with a mass similar to that of Mars.

The Grand Tack model: a critical review

Abstract The “Grand Tack” model proposes that the inner Solar System was sculpted by the giant planets' orbital migration in the gaseous protoplanetary disk. Jupiter first migrated inward then

Dependencies of Mantle Shock Heating in Pairwise Accretion

The final assembly of planets involves mutual collisions of large similar-sized protoplanets (“giant impacts”), setting the stage for modern geologic and atmospheric processes. However, thermodynamic

TERRESTRIAL PLANET FORMATION FROM AN ANNULUS

It has been shown that some aspects of the terrestrial planets can be explained, particularly the Earth/Mars mass ratio, when they form from a truncated disk with an outer edge near 1.0 au. This has

The Delivery of Water During Terrestrial Planet Formation

The planetary building blocks that formed in the terrestrial planet region were likely very dry, yet water is comparatively abundant on Earth. Here we review the various mechanisms proposed for the

Water transport throughout the TRAPPIST-1 system: the role of planetesimals

Observational data suggest that a belt of planetesimals is expected close to the snow line in protoplanetary disks. Assuming there is such a belt in TRAPPIST-1 system, we examine possibilities of

Earth and Terrestrial Planet Formation

The growth and composition of Earth is a direct consequence of planet formation throughout the Solar System. We discuss the known history of the Solar System, the proposed stages of growth and how

Two phase, inward-then-outward migration of Jupiter and Saturn in the gaseous Solar Nebula

It has recently been shown that the terrestrial planets and asteroid belt can be reproduced if the giant planets underwent an inward-then-outward migration (the "Grand Tack"; Walsh et al 2011).

Source regions and timescales for the delivery of water to the Earth

Abstract— In the primordial solar system, the most plausible sources of the water accreted by the Earth were in the outer asteroid belt, in the giant planet regions, and in the Kuiper Belt. We

Formation of the Terrestrial Planets from a Narrow Annulus

We show that the assembly of the solar system terrestrial planets can be successfully modeled with all of the mass initially confined to a narrow annulus between 0.7 and 1.0 AU. With this

Accretional Evolution of a Planetesimal Swarm

We use our multi-zone simulation code (D. Spaute, S. Weidenschilling, D. R. Davis, and F. Marzari,Icarus92,147–164, 1991) to model numerically the accretion of a swarm of planetesimals in the region
