Petrographic and mineralogic studies of amoeboid olivine inclusions (AOIs) in C03 carbonaceous chondrites reveal that they are sensitive indicators of parent-body aqueous and thermal alteration. As the petrologic subtype increases from 3.0 to 3.8, forsteritic olivine (Fao-1) is systematically converted into ferroan olivine (Fa60-75). We infer that the Fe… CONTINUE READING
