Representatives of numerous medical groups, akin to planetary scientists, astronomers, area physicists, chemists and astrobiologists have met with the purpose to study the information on 4 significant issues: (1) the research of the formation and evolution tactics of the outer planets and their satellites, starting with the formation of compounds and planetesimals within the sun nebula, and the next evolution of the interiors of the outer planets, (2) a comparative examine of the atmospheres of the outer planets and Titan, (3) the learn of the planetary magnetospheres and their interactions with the sun wind, and (4) the formation and houses of satellites and earrings, together with their interiors, surfaces, and their interplay with the sunlight wind and the magnetospheres of the outer planets. past those themes, the results for the prebiotic chemical evolution on Europa and Titan are reviewed. on the time of book, the learn of the outer planets is especially influenced via the truth that the Saturn process is being investigated through the Cassini-Huygens undertaking.

Assuming that the core was not eroded since its formation, the collapse formed most of the present envelope of Jupiter. In the framework of this theory, three mechanisms for trapping volatiles in the feeding zone of the planet, can be a priori envisaged: (i) condensation of gases in the cooling nebula, (ii) adsorption of volatiles on amorphous water ice, (iii) trapping of volatiles in the form of clathrate hydrates. 1. C ONDENSATION The uniform enrichment found in Jupiter could result from the condensation of volatiles and their incorporation in planetesimals during phase 2.

Symbols on the figure indicate how the assumed calibration from C results on calculated enrichments for N and S. Should all N2 present in the feeding zone have been clathrated, the calculated enrichment would have been as high as 44, which would depress the calculated spectrum of Uranus and Neptune at 20 cm wavelength. If N2 was not clathrated, the enrichment in nitrogen at deep atmospheric levels deep is between 3 and 5. The S enrichment of 25 calculated 44 D. GAUTIER AND F. , 2004). 9 a B´ezard et al.
