Re: [Phys-L] atmosphere


Its been a while since I’ve studied the origins of the atmosphere so memory is too foggy to recollect the (important) details. If you can get hold of a copy, I would recommend Kent Condie’s “Earth as an Evolving Planetary System”. Condie is a geochemist who has studied the early origins of the Earth for lifetime. It is used as a text book and a little pricey so you might try to get a copy via your library. Iirc biology has had a huge effect on our atmosphere.

eBook ISBN: 9780128037096
Paperback ISBN: 9780128036891

If you are more interested in geologic origins of the Earth is Plate Tectonics and Crustal Evolutions book can’t be beat though it is a little of a challenge to read.

There may be other resources out there but he’s been the go to guy for me on such things.
