The chapter focuses in particular on the sources and fate of the volatiles that degassed from the Earth’s interior and formed its atmosphere, hydrosphere, and sedimentary rocks, giving rise to the global carbon cycle. The chapter also discusses the cooling history and compositional changes of the primordial atmosphere and the early oceans up to the time when life appears.
