Water is fundamental to life. This meeting will explore how the Earth and its planetary neighbours obtained their water, how abundant it is, and its distribution in both pre-planetary and early planetary times. It will bring together Earth and planetary scientists, astrophysicists and chemists to learn from each other about the history of water on our planet and its role in creating the conditions that support life.
Biographies and abstracts are available below, together with the schedule of talks. Alternatively you can download the draft programme (PDF). Recorded audio of the presentations will be available on this page after the event has taken place, and meeting papers will be published in a future issue of Philosophical Transactions A.
