As a Senior Visiting Scientist at LPI, Dr. Cyrena Goodrich has been studying xenoliths in meteoritic breccias, working with Dr. Allan Treiman and Dr. David Kring, LPI Senior Staff Scientists. Shannon Boyle(now a graduate student at Rutgers University) joined the team as an LPI Intern in summer 2016.

The imaging and analyses of meteorites carried out in this work were done at ARES, JSC, using the JEOL 8530F electron microprobe, the Cameca SX-100 electron microprobe and the JEOL 7600F scanning electron microscope.
