Publication Date



The talk will cover the basics of the layout of the Solar System and what meteorites might sample in the Solar System. She will talk about the measurement of porosity and what it tells us. Also, she will discuss the disruption of meteorite samples and what we learn from that as well as how the two threads tie together. She will finish up with a bit about how we find meteorites, including searching in Antarctica (with a little bit about her own experiences there).
