Primordial Planetesimals of the Solar System
If you have a question about this talk, please contact Ed Gillen.
The Solar system offers a unique opportunity to examine the remnants from an intermediate stage of planet formation, the planetesimal stage, if those remnants can be identified, and distinguished from recently produced fragments. Modelling the collisional and dynamical evolution of the Solar system is critical to finding these remnant planetesimals. Employing such models, I discuss where such planetesimals can be found today, and focus on what can be learned from two example populations. I show how the composition of the Oort cloud can be used as a probe of planet migration, and how the properties of the Cold Classical Kuiper belt can be used to constrain how planetesimals (and hence planets) grew.
