Global volatile cycles of early Earth

Development of an enhanced thermo-chemical model of Earth’s mantle, lithosphere and crust by including volatile cycles (focusing mainly on H, C and N that form greenhouse gases, but also Xe, Ar and Ne as trace elements) from interior to surface and vice versa. The cycles operate via outgassing, condensation and crustal recycling. One of the main questions to be answered is which mechanisms could have recycled the volatiles into the upper mantle before the on-set of plate tectonics as it operates today.
