“Water” abundance at the surface of C-complex main-belt asteroids
Mineralogy, chemistry, and composition of organic compounds in the fresh carbonaceous chondrite Mukundpura: CM1 or CM2?
We present here several laboratory analyses performed on the freshly fallen Mukundpura CM chondrite. Results of infrared transmission spectroscopy, thermogravimetry analysis, and reflectance
Miller Range 07687 and its place within the CM‐CO clan
Miller Range (MIL) 07687 is a peculiar carbonaceous chondrite officially classified as a CO3. However, it has been found to display unique petrographic properties that are atypical of this group.
Organic Matter and Associated Minerals on the Dwarf Planet Ceres
Ceres is the largest object in the main belt and it is also the most water-rich body in the inner solar system besides the Earth. The discoveries made by the Dawn Mission revealed that the


Hydrated Minerals on Asteroids: The Astronomical Record
Knowledge of the hydrated mineral inventory on the asteroids is important for deducing the origin of Earth's water, interpreting the meteorite record, and unraveling the processes occurring during
Evidence for widespread hydrated minerals on asteroid (101955) Bennu
Evidence for abundant hydrated minerals on the surface of near-Earth asteroid Bennu is revealed in the form of a near-infrared absorption near 2.7 µm and thermal infrared spectral features that are most similar to those of aqueously altered CM-type carbonaceous chondrites.
The geomorphology, color, and thermal properties of Ryugu: Implications for parent-body processes
Spectral observations and a principal components analysis suggest that Ryugu originates from the Eulalia or Polana asteroid family in the inner main belt, possibly via more than one generation of parent bodies.
