Center hosts Presolar Grain Workshop

This January 20 and 21, the ASU Buseck Center for Meteorite Studies (BCMS) hosted the 2024 Presolar Grain Workshop (PSG), organized by School of Earth and Space Exploration (SESE) Professor Larry Nittler and BCMS Director Rhonda Stroud, with help from BCMS Postdoctoral Scholar Imène Kerraouch and SESE Graduate Student Anuva Anannya.

The PSG Workshop originated as an annual meeting of researchers from Washington University, the University of Chicago, and Clemson University to share findings on the origins and properties of dust grains preserved in meteorites and formed prior to the Solar System, and now include researchers at Arizona State University, the University of Arizona, Boston University and beyond.
SESE Graduate Student Anuva Anannya presented her first study of a possible true interstellar silicate, formed as an aggregate of circumstellar grains from two different stars, and Graduate Associate Elliott Mares-Manton discussed his recent multi-element analysis of presolar grains in meteorite ALH 77307.
