[PPS07-20] Effects of hydrogen on thermal evolution of magma ocean and early surface environment
Keywords:Magma ocean, Reducing atmospheres, Formation of oceans, early climate and surface environment
Recently, several groups have been working on a coupled evolution of early atmosphere and magma ocean, and have investigated the thermal history and volatile budgets on early terrestrial planets(e.g. Elkins-Tanton 2008, Hamano et al. 2013,2015, Lebrun et al. 2013). They have focused on oxidizing atmospheres consisting of water and carbon dioxide, while early atmosphere might have reducing gaseous species. Hydrogen molecule is one of the candidates, since planets could capture nebula gas during formation or it could be produced by chemical reaction between water and metallic iron that could be scattered on giant impact events. In this talk, we would like to discuss contributions of hydrogen on early evolution of terrestrial planets.
