This summer has brought two new review papers:
One in Annual Review of Earth and Planetary Sciences that provides an overview of noble gas constraints on the origins of Earth’s volatiles, volatile delivery during accretion, the timing and extent of volatile loss, early-formed heterogeneities and their preservation over Earth history.
One in Lithos that delves into recent noble gas studies about the source of mantle plumes. This review puts big-picture constraints on chemical geodynamics into context, and provides detail on the mechanics behind the arguments. It is aimed at a wider geoscience audience, and we hope that it would be a useful introduction for those looking to brush up on recent papers.
