Saricicek

Saricicek meteorite fell in Bingol, Turkey, in October 2015. About 200 fragments have so far been collected by the recovery group of the consortium.

As part of the consortium, I am collecting

1) synchrotron-based micro-FTIR spectra of several rocks at the ALS IR beamline 1.4.4. This beamline utilizes a liner element MCT detector and has a spotsize of 10 um.

2) micro-FTIR spectra and 2D images of a thin section of the meteorite

3) micro-Raman spectra and 2D images of a thin section of the meteorite
