Geochimica et Cosmochimica Acta—Astrophysical Implications of Extraterrestrial Materials: A Special Issue for Ernst K. Zinner

Geochimica et Cosmochimica Acta Journal volume 221
Geochimica et Cosmochimica Acta publishes original work in a wide range of subjects in terrestrial geochemistry, meteoritics, and planetary geochemistry. The January 15, 2018 issue (volume 221) contains 22 articles on cutting-edge research on the astrophysical implications of extraterrestrial materials in a special issue dedicated to Dr. Ernst K. Zinner (1937-2015), innovative, eminent scientist known especially for his discovery of presolar grains in meteorites and his pioneering use of Secondary Ion Mass Spectrometry (SIMS) in geo- and cosmochemistry. The special issue is edited by Larry R. Nittler (Carnegie Institution of Washington), Christine Floss (Washington University), Peter Hoppe (MPI for Chemistry, Mainz, Germany), and Kevin McKeegan (UCLA). Though a subscription, individual or institutional, is needed to access the articles online, the Table of Contents and Abstracts are available to everyone. Research articles:
