DTM Staff Scientists and Postdocs to Attend the 48th Lunar and Planetary Science Conference in The Woodlands,Texas

LPSC 2017
The 48th Lunar and Planetary Science Conference will be held March 20-24, 2017 in The Woodlands, Texas.

The 48th Lunar and Planetary Science Conference (LPSC) kicks off next Monday, March 20, 2017, at The Woodlands Waterway Marriott Hotel and Convention Center in The Woodlands, Texas.

This week-long conference brings together international specialists in petrology, geochemistry, geophysics, geology, and astronomy to present their latest research results in planetary science. The program is organized by topical symposia and problem-oriented sessions.

Speakers this year from DTM include Erik Hauri, Nan Liu, Miki Nakajima, My Riebe, and Myriam Telus. Follow along all next week using the schedule below as they give talks on their recent experiments, discoveries, results, and analyses.


Erik Hauri

Hydrogen in Evaporation Experiments and Links to CAIs and Chondrules [#1636]

MONTGOMERY BALLROOM // WED., MARCH 22 @ 10:45 A.M.

AUTHORS: Hauri E. H.,* Alexander C. M. O’D., Wang J., Mendybaev R. A., Jacobsen S. D.

"We have detected H in vacuum evaporation experiments; extrapolation of 1-bar solubility experiments is a poor guide to predicting nebular H contents in melts."


Nan Liu

Decoding Mixing in Supernovae: Correlated Silicon and Titanium Isotopic Signatures in Presolar SiC Grains of Type X [#2331]

MONTGOMERY BALLROOM // THURS., MARCH 23 @ 8:45 A.M.

AUTHORS: Liu N.,* Nittler L. R., Alexander C. M. O’D., Wang J., Miki Nakajima

"We report correlated 49Ti and 28Si excesses in 14 X grains, confirming the absence of the short-lived isotope 49V during grain condensation in SNe."


Miki Nakajima

Origin of the Martian Moons and Their Water Abundances [#2900]

WATERWAY BALLROOM 6 // MON. MARCH 20 @ 9 A.M.

AUTHORS: Nakajima M.,* Canup R. M.

"We estimate the amount of lost water from a martian-moon-forming disk. This result would offer a clue to understand origin of Phobos and Deimos."

Initial Water Abundance of the Bulk Silicate Moon [#2858]

WATERWAY BALLROOM 1 // WED., MARCH 22 @ 8:30 A.M.

AUTHORS: Nakajima M.,* Hauri E. H.

"We estimate the initial water abundance of the bulk silicate Moon based on the time evolution of the Moon-forming disk and the thermal structure of the disk."


My Riebe

Preliminary Isotopic, Chemical, and Microstructural Investigation of Irradiated Organic Dust Analogs [#2579]

TOWN CENTER EXHIBIT AREA // TUES. MARCH 21 @ 6 P.M.

AUTHORS: Riebe M. E. I., Stroud R. M., Alexander C. M. O’D., Katz M. B., Nittler L. R. et al.

"Organic unknowns / Is irradiation key? / Bonding, isotopes."


Myriam Telus

In Situ Analyses of Carbonate and Magnetite in CM1 Chondrites [#1725]

WATERWAY BALLROOM 6 // FRI., MARCH 24 @ 9:15 A.M.

AUTHORS: Telus M.,* Alexander C. M. O’D., Wang J., Hauri E. H.

"C and O isotope variations from in situ analyses of secondary minerals in CM1 chondrites provide evidence for both closed- and open-system aqueous alteration."
