Named in honor of Dominique Bockelaee-Morvan (1957- ), researcher at the Observatoire de Paris. Bockelaee-Morvan has developed excitation models for cometary parent molecules with a view to preparing and interpreting radio and infrared observations, both from space and the ground. She has been involved in the identification of new cometary species and has contributed to a better understanding of the origin of the 3.4-^mband observed in comets. (M 27458)
