    Chondrules and Ordinary Chondrites Discussion Summary As Interpreted by Sierra V. Kaufman Impact Jetting as the Origin of Chondrules (Johnson et al., ) Impact jetting can produce chondrules, and when modeled over the scale of the protoplanetary disk, it can produce the appropriate amount of chondrules. The text summarizes the ideas surrounding the origin and history of chondrules and chondrites, drawing upon research from the various scientific disciplines involved. With citations to a large number of published papers on the topic, the book forms a comprehensive bibliography of the key research areas, and extensive illustrations provide a.

    Drawing on research from the various scientific disciplines involved, this text summarizes the origin and history of chondrules and chondrites. Including citations to every published paper on the topic, it forms a comprehensive bibliography of the latest research. Chondrules are small particles of silicate material that experienced melting before their incorporation into chondritic parent bodies. Particles with different compositions such as Calcium–Aluminum-rich Inclusions (CAIs) and basaltic fragments are not considered chondrules are spherical as they solidified from liquid droplets, but most chondrules are .

    The secondary chondrules provide strong arguments against direct condensation of chondrules. The evidence, rather, favors the so-called ‘ignimbritic’ model of chondrule and chondrite formation. Textural relations, e.g., welding of different components, are also consistent with the latter by: Cambridge Core - Computational Science and Modelling - Chondrules - edited by Sara S. Russell.

Although rare, relict grains in chondrules are those that survived the high temperature phase that initially melted most primitive chondrules and dust. Present chondrules crystallized from this melting episode.

They typically have a dusty appearance, e.g., tiny, dark inclusions, like those in the central violet grain shown in Figure Figure   Drawing on research from the various scientific disciplines involved, this text summarizes the origin and history of chondrules and chondrites.
