Understanding the formation and evolution of asteroids through analysis of carbonaceous chondrites

Abstract:

The transport and evolution of volatiles (e.g. water, organics) during the formation of the inner terrestrial planets of our Solar System is relatively poorly constrained. A number of dynamical mechanisms have been proposed that transport volatile rich material from the outer Solar System (i.e. from beyond the snow-line, currently 5 AU), and primitive, volatile-rich asteroids may provide clues as to these processes. Observations demonstrate that these asteroids have similar infrared spectr...
