IsoSyC is a Starting Grant ERC project (2013), led by Vinciane Debaille (G-Time Lab, Faculty of Sciences)

Meteorites, undifferentiated or not, are privileged witnesses of solar system accretion processes and early planetary evolution. Short-lived radioactive chronometers are particularly adapted in dating and understanding these early differentiation processes. This proposal is dedicated to two main questions: what is the initial composition of the solar system and terrestrial planets?; Having refined these parameters, how and when silicate bodies differentiated?
The final goal of the present proposal is to determine if Earth and other planets are chondritic or not (i.e. their initial composition), and to understand the implications of their refined starting composition on their geological evolution in terms of early planetary differentiation.
