20-EPN2-042: Investigation of type 2 ungrouped carbonaceous chondrites to shed light on their origin, formation, and evolution
Visit by Mehmet Yesiltas, Kirklareli University (Turkey) to TA2 Facility 5 – DLR Planetary Spectroscopy Laboratory (Germany).
Dates of visit: 27 June -1 July 2022
In the TA call 2 of the Europlanet 2024 framework, both hemispherical and bidirectional reflectance spectra were collected on a total of 13 meteorites. For each meteorite, spectral data were recorded between 0.2 μm and 25 μm.
The analysed meteorite samples included carbonaceous chondrites as well as non-carbonaceous chondrites that contain carbonaceous clasts and phases. The meteorites were measured as bulk, and the same 2 mm diameter for the incoming beam aperture was used. These measurements and their results will provide additional insights on the infrared spectra of meteorites and their carbon content, which will help us better understand and constrain the composition of their respective parent asteroids.
