Merle, Renaud E.; Nemchin, Alexander A.; Whitehouse, Martin J.; Pidgeon, Robert T.; Grange, Marion L.; Snape, Joshua F.; Thiessen, Fiona


In this paper, we compare the U-Pb zircon age distribution pattern of sample14311 from the Apollo 14 landing site with those from other breccias collected at the samelanding site. Zircons in breccia 14311 show major age peaks at 4340 and 4240 Ma and smallpeaks at 4110, 4030, and 3960 Ma. The zircon age patterns of breccia 14311 and otherApollo 14 breccias are statistically different suggesting a separate provenance andtransportation history for these breccias. This interpretation is supported...[Show more]
