Low Energy Solar Nuclear Particle Irradiation of Lunar and Meteoritic Breccias

  • J. C. Dran (a1), J. P. Duraud (a1) and M. Maurette (a1)

Abstract

We have studied by combined high voltage and scanning electron microscopies both the latent and etched track distributions in lunar fragmental rocks as well as in solar type gas-rich meteorites. We have used a new experimental approach for studying gas-rich meteorites to avoid problems with the interpretation of the results. Some implications of the present results concerning the ancient solar flare cosmic rays and the origin of the track distributions in gas-rich meteorite crystals will be discussed.
