Support of Meteoritic Research

I am committed to supporting and furthering the science of meteoritics and do so in various ways. Like anyone who acquires meteorites new to the market, either by buying from finders or by recovering meteorites from a fresh fall, I have had my specimen(s) classified. As part of that process, I strive to provide the most complete information possible and work with the classifying scientists to make sure the final submitted write-up to the NomComm truly reflects the composition and variety displayed by the meteorite.

However, my real passion is working closely with researchers to help them find specimens needed for research for purchase or loan, or to bring to their attention specific specimens with unusual features that I find within my collection or inventory. As part of their requests to locate specific meteorites or my forwarding special specimens to the appropriate researchers, I am able to contribute to meteoritic science as described in the following papers:

  1. CAI IN THE HIGHLY UNEQUILIBRATED ORDINARY CHONDRITE NORTHWEST AFRICA 8276: IMPLICATIONS FOR CAI FORMATION AND PROCESSING. S. S. Russell, et. al. 2016 (Credit given to M. Ouzillou)
  2. INVESTIGATIONS OF CARBON PHASES IN CANYON DIABLO METEORITE. A. Karczemska, T. Jakbubowski, M. Ouzillou, et. al. 2016 (Credit given to M. Ouzillou)
  3. SPHERULES IN THE MARTIAN POLYMICT BRECCIAS. II. CHEMICAL SEDIMENTARY PROCESSES ON MARS. M. Humayun, et. al. 2019 (Credit given to M. Ouzillou)
  4. MESQUITE: PETROGRAPHY, ALUMINUM-26 CHRONOMETRY, AND BE-B SYSTEMATICS OF AN UNUSUALLY LARGE MELILITE-RICH CAI FROM THE NORTHWEST AFRICA (NWA) 7892 CO3.0 CHONDRITE. A. T. Hertwig, E. T. Dunham, et. al. 2019 (No direct credit given, but the “Mesquite” CAI was named in M. Ouzillou’s honor)
  5. INITIAL DESCRIPTION OF AN IMPACT MELT CLAST IN LL3 CHONDRITE NORTHWEST AFRICA 10598. T.L. Dunn, et. al. 2019 (M. Ouzillou identified clast and offered to T. Dunn)

In the event a museum or type specimen repository is cannot provide a specimen/sample (especially for destructive analysis) from their collection, I will work to find the required material.

 

I have classified, been part of the classification process or been included as one of the mass holders of the following meteorites:
