How much mass (either absolute or relative to the Earth) was [estimate to have been] added to the Earth during the Late Heavy Bombardment?

  • $\begingroup$ Graphs Fig. 1 and Fig. 6 show LHB accretion rate spikes for the Moon. I guess the rates for the Earth could be inferred from this. $\endgroup$ – Keith McClary May 13 '18 at 23:28
  • $\begingroup$ I remember seeing a paper recently that did some mass balance calculations. Can't remember which one. I would start with a Google Scholar search on the topic and try to find some estimates. $\endgroup$ – Gimelist May 14 '18 at 22:51
