Abstract

Impact materials collected at the Barringer Meteor Crater have been characterized by SEM-EDX and micro-PIXE techniques. Fine textural and true elemental images were created. As a main feature silica-bearing shell and an S-Fe-Ni-Cu core could be distinguished. Three different types of S-Fe-Ni-Cu systems were identified such as chalcopyrite, pentlandite and pyrrhotite.
