The Significance of Slope 1 Variation in Early Solar System Solids [STUB]

Abstract: As originally demonstrated by Clayton and co-workers, primitive meteorites and their components commonly display mass-independent oxygen isotopic variation. As a tool to understand this behaviour, a number of reference lines have been defined, with slopes of approximately 1. The Carbonaceous Chondrite Anhydrous Mineral (CCAM) line, derived predominantly from analyses of components in the Allende (CV3) meteorite, is the most widely used reference and has a slope of 0.94 plus or minus 0.01 (2 s…
