Atmospheric Evolution

Earth’s atmosphere has evolved as volatile species cycle between the atmosphere, ocean, biomass and the solid Earth.

The geochemical, biological and astrophysical processes that control atmospheric evolution are reviewed from an “Earth Systems” perspective, with a view not only to understanding the history of Earth, but also to generalizing to other solar system planets and exoplanets.
