Abstract

The Japanese Antarctic Research Expedition (JARE) teams have started collection of unmelted and melted micrometeorites (MMs) in Antarctica since 1996. Some results of the consortium studies are: (1) relatively common occurrence of magnesiowüstite (MW) in unmelted MMs, (2) coexistence of MW with low-Ca pyroxene in moderately heated MMs, and (3) evidence that MMs were formed as small particles, rather than fragments of larger bodies, with <a few Ma.
