Geochimica et Cosmochimica Acta—Special Issue on Isotopic Studies of Planetary and Nuclear Materials: A scientific tribute to Ian Douglass Hutcheon
Geochimica et Cosmochimica Acta
publishes original work in a wide range of subjects in terrestrial geochemistry, meteoritics, and planetary geochemistry. The March 15, 2017 issue (volume 201) contains 22 papers covering isotopic studies of planetary and nuclear materials in a special issue dedicated to Ian Douglass Hutcheon (1947-2015), preeminent scientist known for his work on the chronology of the early Solar System and his contributions to the development of instrumentation and techniques for isotopic and elemental microanalysis. Editors of the special issue are Trevor Ireland (Australian National University), Andrew M. Davis (The University of Chicago), Alexander N. Krot (University of Hawaii), Yuri Amelin (Australian National University), Sara S. Russell (Natural History Museum, London), and Qing-Zhu Yin (University of California at Davis).
