DTM Scientists Attend 80th Meteoritical Society Meeting

80th Meteoritical Society Meeting

DTM staff scientists Conel Alexander and Larry Nittler, along with postdoctoral fellows Nan Liu, Myriam Telus, and My Riebe, discussed their research at the Meteoritical Society's 80th annual meeting.  The scientific results of former DTM postdoctoral fellows Richard Ash, Terry Blackburn, Henner Busemann*, Jemma Davidson, Frank Gyngard, Christian Koeberl*Ann Nguyen*, and Maria Schönbächler* were also presented at the July 23 - 28 meeting in Santa Fe.
