Petrology and geochemistry of LaPaz Icefield 02205: A new unique low-Ti mare-basalt meteorite
LaPaz Icefield 02205 (LAP 02205) is a new low-Ti mare-basalt meteorite that was discovered in the LaPaz Ice Field in Antarctica. This is the first crystalline lunar basalt in the US AntarcticExpand

The mercury imaging X-ray spectrometer (MIXS) on BepiColombo
The Mercury Imaging X-ray Spectrometer (MIXS) on the BepiColombo Mercury Planetary Orbiter (MPO) will measure fluorescent X-ray emission from the surface of Mercury in the energy range 0.5–7.5 keV,Expand

Silicon isotope variations in the inner solar system: Implications for planetary formation, differentiation and composition
Abstract Accurate and precise Si isotope measurements were obtained using magnesium doping and high-resolution plasma source mass spectrometry for samples representative of the Earth, as well asExpand

The abundance, distribution, and isotopic composition of Hydrogen in the Moon as revealed by basaltic lunar samples: Implications for the volatile inventory of the Moon
Abstract In this study we have measured the OH contents and D/H ratios in apatite grains in lunar basalts. These new data considerably expand the limited dataset published so far. The data presentedExpand

Lunar basalt chronology, mantle differentiation and implications for determining the age of the Moon
Despite more than 40 years of studying Apollo samples, the age and early evolution of the Moon remain contentious. Following the formation of the Moon in the aftermath of a giant impact, the resultExpand

The oxygen isotope composition, petrology and geochemistry of mare basalts: Evidence for large-scale compositional variation in the lunar mantle
To investigate the formation and early evolution of the lunar mantle and crust we have analysed the oxygen isotopic composition, titanium content and modal mineralogy of a suite of lunar basalts. OurExpand

Apatites in lunar KREEP basalts: The missing link to understanding the H isotope systematics of the Moon
Recent re-analyses of lunar samples have undoubtedly measured indigenous water, challenging the paradigm of a “dry” Moon, and arguing that some portions of the lunar interior are as wet as someExpand

Geology, geochemistry, and geophysics of the Moon: Status of current understanding
The Moon is key to understanding both Earth and our Solar System in terms of planetary processes and has been a witness of the Solar System history for more than 4.5 Ga. Building on earlierExpand

Petrology of igneous clasts in Northwest Africa 7034: Implications for the petrologic diversity of the martian crust
The martian meteorite Northwest Africa (NWA) 7034 was examined both petrographically and geochemically using several micro-beam techniques including electron probe microanalysis and secondary ionExpand

Trace-element modelling of mare basalt parental melts: Implications for a heterogeneous lunar mantle
The heterogeneous-source model of mare basalt formation indicates that Lunar Magma Ocean (LMO) overturn produced an uneven mixture of early-formed olivine and pyroxene, and late-formed, ilmenite-richExpand
