An upper limit to the erosion of iron meteorites in space is calculated, based on the cosmic exposure age of the Grant meteorite and the measured depth variation of cosmogenic Ne21 in this meteorite. A value for Emax of ∼1.1×10−8 cm/yr is found. A previous estimate based on the Sikhote-Alin meteorite is discussed.
