Cosmochemical Applications Using Mass Spectrometry
MetadataShow full item record
The use of mass spectrometry to study samples from extra-terrestrial origin is described. Such earth-bound material can arise from meteorites or materials recovered from the moon. In addition, mass spectrometers have been carried on various space probes to investigate the material in Halley's comet, the solar wind, interplanetary dust particles and the Martian atmosphere. Investigations include not only compositional studies but isotopic anomalies and time scales of cosmological events as well.

Nusit, K.; Jitsangiam, Peerapong; Kodikara, J.; Bui, H.; Leung, G.L.M. (2015)One of the most common methods used in road-pavement construction is the stabilizing of the conventional pavement base course layer. This is achieved by adding cement or lime to gain better material performance. However, ...
