Faculty/Staff Detail

Melissa Morris, Physics Department, and collaborators, had their work featured in the headline article in the October issue of Planetary Science Research Discoveries. “Accretional Layers Preserved in a Meteorite” details their research on how the visible sequence of layers in the Isheyevo meteorite tells a story of impact debris deposited, layer by layer, onto the surface of the surviving planetesimal. Also, Morris and collaborators, including SUNY Cortland senior Matt Metcalf, submitted a paper to The Astrophysical Journal Letters, titled “Thermal History of CBb Chondrules and Cooling Rate Distributions of Ejecta Plumes.”
