Abstract

One aspect of our recent paper (HAGEE et al., 1990) on actinide abundances in ordinary chondrites is estimation of the amount of ^(244)Pu present in these meteorites at the time of their formation. This estimate is based on the quantity of ^(244)Pu spontaneous fission Xe, a component whose resolution from other Xe components present must be based on observed isotopic compositions in the meteorite and assumed compositions for the contributing components. In their comments, MYERS and KURODA (1991) advocate a different approach to component analysis of Xe than the one we used and arrive at correspondingly different estimates of fission Xe and ^(244)Pu abundances.
