New manuscript by former M.S. student Rachel Rahib: Poikilitic shergottites

The new manuscript: Mantle source to near-surface emplacement of enriched and intermediate poikilitic shergottites in Mars” first -authored by former M.S. student Rachel Rahib (graduated in Fall 2018) was published this summer in GCA. This work is a comprehensive and systematic studies of 11 poikilitic shergottites to better constrain the formation and emplacement of these meteorites. By using various methods, this study supports the emplacement of both enriched and intermediate poikilitic shergottites as various shallow intrusive bodies, as well as a potentially widespread emplacement mechanism responsible for a major lithology of the martian crust. This manuscript also includes former M.S. student Logan Combs and former undergraduate student Dara Laczniak.
