Microanalysis of impactors of the earth and impact products from the moon : the origin and evolution of micrometeorites, and tracking bombardment history through chemical and radioisotopic memories of lunar impact spherules

Hui, Simeon Sai Main


This thesis consists of two topics, the study of terrestrially-collected micrometeorites and lunar impact spherules. The purpose of the first project was primarily method development, although a study of micrometeorite petrography, chemistry, atmospheric alteration, and potential origin ensued. A classification system was developed with a focus on transitional internal textures to highlight the sequence of alteration occurring during atmospheric heating. Micrometeorite composition was used to...[Show more]
