Synopsis: How did the solar system’s chemical composition evolve? This textbook provides the answers in the first interdisciplinary introduction to cosmochemistry. It makes this exciting and evolving field accessible to undergraduate and graduate students from a range of backgrounds, including geology, chemistry, astronomy and physics. The authors – two established leaders who have pioneered developments in the field – provide a complete background to cosmochemical processes and discoveries, enabling students outside geochemistry to understand and explore the Solar System’s composition.
