Origin and distribution of water in Martian meteorites

Project: Research project

Project Details

Description

Minerals from meteorites ejected from the martian surface will be analyzed for hydrogen and its
isotopes at the ASU SIMS facility with the goal of understanding how much H2O was dissolved in the
magmas that cooled to form the observed rocks, and how it might have been re-distributed during
cooling, alteration, and shock. Specifically for understanding the role of shock, terrestrial samples
will be subjected to shock experiments, and the products analyzed for hydrogen and its isotopes at
ASU for comparison with the martian samples.
