About the Meteoritical Bulletin Database

This database has been constructed and is maintained by the Nomenclature Committee of the Meteoritical Society. Contact Jeff Grossman (jgrossman@nasa.gov) for additional information or to report suspected errors.

Purpose

The primary function of this database is to provide authoritative information about meteorite names. The correct spelling, complete with punctuation and diacritical marks, of all known meteorites recognized by the Meteoritical Society may be found in this compilation. Official abbreviations for many meteorites are documented here as well. The database also contains status information for meteorites with provisional names, and listings for specimens of doubtful origin and pseudometeorites.

In addition, this database is a clearinghouse for basic information about each meteorite, including the classification, place and year of discovery, whether if was observed to fall, references to catalogues in which the meteorite is described, and known synonyms that may be encountered in the literature. The catalogues that are indexed here, including the Catalogue of Meteorites from the Natural History Museum in London, the commercial program MetBase, the Antarctic Meteorite Newsletter, and the Meteoritical Bulletin contain detailed information about the meteorites, including narratives of the discovery, mineralogy, petrology, specimen locations, chemical and isotopic composition, and references to the literature.

A seconday purpose of this database is to provide an interface to map services for the display of geographic information about meteorites. Two are currently implemented here. If the user has installed the free NASA program World Wind, links are provided for each meteorite to zoom the program to the find location. The database also provides links to the Google Maps service for the display of find locations.

Construction of the database

The primary source of information in this database is the Catalogue of Meteorites. It is considered the authoritative source of information on meteorite names up to the time of its last publication (2002). Data from the Catalogue have been supplemented by the more recent compilation in "MetBase" (v7.1, 2005). Issues of the Meteoritical Bulletin that post-date MetBase 7.1 will be used to provide information on the most recent meteorite names approved by the Nomenclature Committee.

In cases where data in the Catalogue and MetBase differ, both are listed in the present database. These two compilations both rely on the Meteoritical Bulletin for information on new meteorites. The reasons for disagreement are varied, and may include typographical errors or attempts by the authors to incorporate literature data (especially on classification) that post-date the original entry in the Meteoritical Bulletin. No attempt is made here to arbitrate these discrepancies. Instead, a "recommended" value is given, which is based solely on the opinions of the compiler of the present database (Grossman).
