Event Description

The Hadean Earth-Moon System - Workshop Without Walls 

Please join us for the NAI Early Earth Focus Group Workshop Without Walls on "The Hadean Earth-Moon System". The workshop is aimed at providing the most up-to-date science on the first billion years’ history of the Earth–Moon system, from solar system formation at 4.567 Ga to the widespread preservation of crustal rocks at 3.5 Ga to evidence for life preserved within those rocks. 

Themes to be presented/discussed include:
* Solar system accretion
* Moon-forming giant impact
* Late heavy bombardment
* Formation and preservation of early crust: A cool early Earth?
* Formation and capture of the hydrosphere
* A reducing/anoxic/oxic atmosphere?
* Habitats of Earth’s earliest life
* Early microbial metabolisms, including photosynthesis

This virtual workshop will consist of presentations and discussion periods held over a period of 4 hours each day for two consecutive days, facilitated through an online multi-user video-conferencing system using Adobe Connect to be hosted by the technical facilities of the NAI. The meeting will start at 19:00 UTC on both May 20 and May 21.

This finished today. Very, very enjoyable even for me in a subject whose jargon is quite unfamiliar. Still, I learnt a lot of new terms (busily looking them up) having had two questions confirmed and answered live online by serious scientists very knowledgeable in their field.  Thank you for posting this Sara.  :-D
