Researchers are considering geology associated with rich organic matter in areas of Ceres. Data from the Dawn apparatus shows a site around the crater of Ernuteta, where organic concentrations were noticed. Color framing demonstrates surface deposits in the visible and near IR spectrometer. The inset indicated an improved crater resolution. Red marked a higher concentration of organic matter
Dawn spacecraft managed to find a localized material on Ceres, rich in organic matter. Therefore, scientists from the South-West Research Institute undertook to study a variety of scenarios of its origin. Most likely, organic substances are native to the asteroid.
Large concentrations were noticed near the crater Ernuteta. Hence the question: did the material appear with the object, or did it remain after the impact? It is believed that the dwarf planet was formed 4.5 billion years ago. The study of organic matter contributes to the explanation of the origin, evolution and distribution of organic species throughout the system. Even the position of Ceres (between the internal and external systems, where there is a lot of clay, sodium and ammonium carbonates) indicates a complex chemical development. While the role of organic matter in this process is not entirely clear. Scientists studied the parameters of the drummer, such as size and speed, and also used iSALE imitation models. They showed that all cometary shells with relatively high acceleration destroy organic matter due to compression. Lower speeds will save 20% -30% of the initial amount. But to find the right option will only further research.
