Integrate the early Earth and prebiotic chemistry communities and break down disciplinary barriers that stymy the pursuit of plausible prebiotic chemistry pathways.
Develop robust and fully-parameterized models of early Earth environments that can be explored both experimentally and theoretically for their potential to host prebiotic chemical pathways.
Promote novel and innovative experimental and theoretical approaches to exploring the abiotic → prebiotic → biotic transition.
Identify planetary conditions that can or cannot give rise to life’s chemistry and thus inform the exploration for life throughout the universe.
Characterize geochemical and geophysical constraints of early Earth environments that can be applied to test, verify, validate, and guide existing and future experimental and theoretical prebiotic chemistries.
