Cosmochemistry Illustrated

Hawaii Institute of Geophysics and Planetology

This website offers short PowerPoint presentations that provide extraterrestrial examples of terrestrial topics. Longer presentations are also available for anyone wishing to go into more cosmochemical detail. References and background are given in the notes pages of the presentations. You may have to download the presentations to your computer to view the notes.

Topics include mineralogy, igneous processes, elemental fractionation, phase diagrams, thermodynamics, isotopes and chronology, stable isotopes, geochemical cycles, aqueous chemistry, biogeochemistry, oceans and atmospheres, planetary differentiation, and planet formation.
