... across the inner solar system – a region that includes Mercury, Venus, Earth, the Moon, Mars and asteroids. The diversity and breadth of landforms produced by volcanic and tectonic processes are enormous, and vary across the inventory of inner solar system bodies. As a result, the selection of prevailing...

... in the inner solar system and massive, volatile-rich gas giants in the outer solar system. Any volatiles present above the surfaces of the terrestrial planets (Mercury, Venus, Earth, and Mars) are the result of outgassing from their interiors. During more than five decades of studying the planets of the inner...

... to physicochemical processes in the protoplanetary disk. In addition, a number of stellar nucleosynthetic effects have been shown for neutron-rich isotopes carried either in tiny phases or determined in whole-rock samples. These findings have led to the recognition that the inner Solar System was isotopically less...
