Comparing the Chemical Compositions of the Sun and Earth

By C. H. Lineweaver and J. A. Robles


Abstract. We compare the solar and terrestrial bulk elemental compositions. We show that the Sun and Earth share the same refractory elemental abundances, and that, to first order, the Earth is a devolatilized piece of the Sun left over from the Sun’s formation. We discuss the advantages of an aluminium normalization for this comparison over the traditional silicon normalization. 1
