Wednesday 05 Aug 2020: [Seminar] Carbon during planet formation: From disks and dust to pebbles, planetesimals and planets
Sebastiaan Krijt - University of Arizona/University of Exeter
Remote seminar 14:00-15:00
Carbon plays a central role in our understanding of protoplanetary disk evolution and (exo)planet formation. In this talk, I will highlight recent studies (mostly from other groups) that use observations of carbon in various forms to shed light on different processes connected to planet formation. I'll try to present a coherent story while discussing CO depletion in protoplanetary disks, pebble accretion and giant planet atmospheres, (exo)comets, the NASA New Horizons flyby of Arrokoth, the formation of Earth, and polluted white dwarfs.
