Earth’s water may have been inherited from material similar to enstatite chondrite meteorites
It is shown that EC meteorites contain sufficient hydrogen to have delivered to Earth at least three times the mass of water in its oceans, which would require Earth's water to be from a different source, such as comets.
Atom probe tomography of space‐weathered lunar ilmenite grain surfaces
The surfaces of airless bodies, such as the Moon and asteroids, are subject to space weathering, which alters the mineralogy of the upper tens of nanometers of grain surfaces. Atom probe tomography
Atom Probe Tomography: Development and Application to the Geosciences
Atom probe tomography (APT) is an analytical technique that provides quantitative three‐dimensional elemental and isotopic analyses at sub‐nanometre resolution across the whole periodic table.
Linking mineralogy and spectroscopy of highly aqueously altered CM and CI carbonaceous chondrites in preparation for primitive asteroid sample return
The highly hydrated, petrologic type 1 CM and CI carbonaceous chondrites likely derived from primitive, water‐rich asteroids, two of which are the targets for JAXA's Hayabusa2 and NASA's OSIRIS‐REx
Origin and abundances of H2O in the terrestrial planets, Moon, and asteroids
Untangling the formation and liberation of water in the lunar regolith
Evidence via laboratory simulation experiments that water can be generated and liberated through thermal shocks induced by micrometeorite impacts on solar-wind proton-implanted anhydrous silicates, providing evidence of a key mechanism to synthesize water in silicates and advancing understanding on the origin of water as detected on the Moon and other airless bodies in the authors' solar system such as Mercury and asteroids.
New clues to ancient water on Itokawa
The first measurements of hydrogen isotopic composition and water content in nominally anhydrous minerals collected by the Hayabusa mission from the S-type asteroid Itokawa infer that the Bulk Silicate Itokava parent body originally had 160 to 510 ppm water.
Incorporation of water into olivine during nebular condensation: Insights from density functional theory and thermodynamics, and implications for phyllosilicate formation and terrestrial water inventory
Using density functional theory, we have examined the hydration mechanism of olivine with the objective of understanding the reaction pathways toward the formation of crystalline serpentine and
