Carbonaceous Chondrite

Recommended Posts

All,

Control burns is the LAST thing that you would want.

Sutter's Milll is CARBON! You would destroy the meteorites.

Even worse, you would turn all of the wood into charcoal precisely looking like Sutter's Mill Meteorites.

Anyplace that is burned is where you will NOT find a meteorite.

Bill, you're right about the fire not being what is desired, but Sutter's Mill meteorite is a carbonateous chondrite, not a piece of carbon. The carbon content of CCs is actually quite low (comparitively) and the designation is really something of a misnomer now since our understanding of that class of chondrites has increased greatly in the last decade.

Bill,

I was kidding. Been a volunteer firefighter here locally and served on the fire board. Wouldn't want any fire in the strewn field as it is a heavily populated area and very beautiful. My property is within the field as well and we keep looking but only find the deer drops.
