Nitrogen , Argon and Xenon in Happy Canyon E Chondrite

Introduction: An interesting aspect of enstatite chondrites (EC) lies in their oxygen isotopic compositions that are identical to those of the Earth-Moon system [1]. Thus it has been suggested that Earth could have accreted mostly from EC [e.g., 2]. Similarly, based on an assessment of nitrogen and oxygen isotopes in martian meteorites about 75… CONTINUE READING
