Planetary Chemistry Laboratory

Forest Park Sky

The Planetary Chemistry Laboratory is run by Professor Bruce Fegley, Jr. and Dr. Katharina Lodders in the Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences at Washington University in St. Louis.

We use principles of cosmochemistry and geochemistry to study to terrestrial planets and exoplanets, gas giant planets and their satellites, and cool stars. One major research theme are the solar system abundances of the chemical elements.
