Abstract

From the introduction: Small planetary bodies accreted within 2.4 Myr of solar system formation [1]. The primitive materials (CAIs, chondrules, matrix) incorporated into these asteroids were altered by a variety of secondary processes, including aqueous alteration, shock metamorphism, thermal metamorphism and melting. Here we look primarily at the role played by thermal metamorphism and melting in altering the oxygen isotope systematics of asteroidal materials.
