- The aqueous alteration history in the solar system are studied through acquiring additional CCD reflectance spectra in the blue-UV through near-IR spectral region and analyzing these spectra for information about iron oxides in phyllosilicates identified in the CM and CI carbonaceous chondrites. Emphasis is on the main-belt and Cybele primitive asteroids, as these asteroids show spectral diversity and are also spectral analogues for known meteorite samples. The porphyrin bands found in organics near 0.4 micron is also sought.
