Chemical Evolution

Galactic chemical evolution is a multidisciplinary field that involves nuclear astrophysics, astronomical observations, and galaxy evolution theories in a cosmological context. The primary goal of the Chemical Evolution working group is to benefit from the diverse JINA-CEE research activities and to coordinate collaborative efforts to answer fundamental questions regarding the origin and evolution of all elements and isotopes observed in the Milky Way and its satellite galaxies. This working groups will exploit input from other JINA-CEE working groups such as the Stellar Burning and First Star Nucleosynthesis, the Origin of the r-Process, and the Stellar Yields groups.
