Title variants
Siderophile elements in the Morasko meteorites
Languages of publication
Sixteen specimens of the Morasko, one specimen of Seeläsgen and one specimen of Jankowo Dolne irons were analyzed with INAA to determine contents of 14 siderophile elements. The samples selected for analyses have their structures described and the presence or absence of cohenite checked. For preliminary interpretation, we have chosen elements determined with highest accuracy: Co, Ni, Ga, As, Ir and Au. The results are shown in tables and diagrams. It has been found that there are no significant differences in composition between fragments with and without cohenite. The observed low contents if iridium are not accompanied by lower contents of elements showing similar behavior during crystallization: platinum and tungsten, which suggests that fractional crystallization was not the reason of lower iridium content. Similar concentrations of elements have been found in all the Morasko specimens, and in the Seeläsgen and Jankowo Dolne irons, which suggests that all these meteorites come from one iron shower.
