This is consistent with the systematic mass-independent oxygen isotopic trend of magnetite in CV chondrules fig. Formation of Chondrules by Disruption of Molten Planetesimals.

Early scattering of the solar protoplanetary disk recorded in meteoritic chondrules

Fifty scientists from assorted disciplines have collaborated to review how chondrules could have formed in the protoplanetary disk. Chemical, Mineralogical and Isotopic Properties of Chondrules: Previous article Next article.

Dynamical models suggest that two types of impacts between planetesimals occurred during the evolution of the early solar system and could be compatible with diisk formation of SAM-bearing chondrules: Nature— CCAM, carbonaceous chondrite anhydrous mineral.

Variable, see Astroshop Article eAccess: In this reaction, precursor Mg-rich olivines and Fe-Ni metal are partially molten in volatile-enriched, high f O 2 gas resulting in Si and S enrichment in the chondrule melt and the formation of pyroxene, FeS, and FeSO.

Refractory Inclusions and Chondrules: Chemical composition of magnetite. Published online Jul 1.

In addition, large impact-generated dust enrichments would also imply O-isotopic equilibrium between surviving precursor olivine and newly formed low-Ca pyroxene 22as commonly observed within porphyritic chondrules 34 It will be of interest to astronomers and planetary scientists who study the formation of stars and our planetary system and others who study meteorites.


Abstract Meteoritic chondrules are submillimeter spherules representing the major constituent of nondifferentiated planetesimals formed in the solar protoplanetary disk.

Chondrules and the Protoplanetary Disk

These observations may preclude formation of the majority of porphyritic chondrules by splashing of differentiated planetesimals and by collisions between planetesimals; instead, protoplaneetary are consistent with melting of dust balls by bow shocks or magnetized turbulence in the disk.

A Backscattered electron image of a porphyritic olivine-pyroxene POP chondrule in Kaba CV3 revealing the preferential distribution of sulfides FeS and magnetites Fe 3 O 4 in the outer zone mainly composed of low-Ca pyroxenes.

Information related to the author. In this scheme, the oxidation and sulfidation of Fe-Ni metal beads into OA are thus contemporaneous with the formation of SAMs, revealing protoplanetayr the last oxidizing chondrule-melting event had a significant influence on chondrule mineralogy.

This article has been cited by other articles in PMC. The inset shows the typical range of oxygen isotopic chonfrules established for the Sun, CAIs, and chondrules and ice present in meteorites.

This is drastically different from the textures of OAs Fig. The oxygen isotopic compositions of SAMs define a linear array with a best-fit slope of 0. Acta 90— Twenty-one chondrules that present magnetites of sufficient size for petrographic and isotopic analyses were chosen for detailed characterization.

Chondrites and the Protoplanetary Disk –

When the pyroxene fibers are coarser, they may appear to radiate from a single nucleation site on the surface, forming a radial or excentroradial texture. Evolution and Dynamic Environment 54 Reipurth, B.

All data used in the present article are available by contacting Y. Primitive meteorites chondrites are the only available fragments of asteroidal belt objects that formed early in the disk and escaped global melting and differentiation. The prominent lack of chemical and oxygen isotopic equilibrium between olivines and chondrule glasses observed in some type I condrules 2122 shows that Mg-rich olivines in these chondrules are relict minerals that have preserved, at least partly, the chemical and isotopic compositions of chondrule precursors.

High f O 2 and P SiO would also be a natural consequence of high-velocity impacts between planetesimals formed at different heliocentric distances because of the inward-then-outward gas-driven dixk of Jupiter and Saturn in the disk
