I am wondering about the effects of silica gel stored with sealed
carbonaceous chondrites. Could this remove water from these meteorites that
normally arrive with a significant water content?
Would it be better to store carbonaceous chondrites in an inert gas?
Of course all fallen carbonaceous chondrites have been exposed to some
terrestrial water but earth water may not have migrated to the center of
fresh meteorites.
