A note on the cosmogony of the asteroidal belt

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

1 Scopus citations


Several arguments based on the orbital dynamics of the asteroids are used to support the idea that the original solar nebula might not necessarily be the Laplacian type of thin disk-like structure. The orbital distribution of the large asteroids is suggested to be a direct result of their accretions of condensed grains in eccentric orbits via the jet stream process.
