Rochechouart at the 2018-Lunar and Planetary Science Conference in Houston

Rochechouart at LPSC49

Rochechouart has been twice at honor at the 49th Lunar and Planetary Conference held in March in Houston. An overview of the first results of the drilling campaign was presented by Philippe Lambert and the 58 CIRIR team members, at the 4th Impact Session of the general program. In addition a special session on the drillings at Rochechouart was held on Wednesday, March 21 2018 gathering all the CIRIR team members attending the conference and other scientists interested with the topic. This session lead by Philippe Lambert expanded late in the evening, allowing a better insight into the variety of facies and the richness of features exposed in the 510 m of drill cores recovered. For the CIRIR team group and others interested in studying the cores, it was the occasion to discuss the next steps of the programme (sample allocation process and the related scientific projects of the PIs).
