dc.description.abstract The topics that will form the basis for most of the discussion will be as follows: 1. Accretion: comparisons with other stars, loss of volatiles in the inner solar system, accretionary rates, and the thermal development of planets 2. Timing: timing of accretion of the Earth and Moon system within the context of inner solar system development 3. Giant impact theory: dynamic simulations of the giant impact, the composition of the Earth and Moon, and problems with the giant impact theory, as well as alternatives 4. Magma oceans on the Earth and Moon: physical properties of magma oceans, core formation mechanisms, and the nature of the late veneer 5. Outgassing: early atmospheres, noble gases, hydrodynamic escape, and later additions, including the acquisition of water 6. The earliest Earth and Moon: low luminosity early Sun, bombardment, stabilization of crust, tectonics, and mantle dynamics, introduction and/or synthesis of amino acids, organic and molecular evolution in the Hadean Earth. en
