Meteoritical Bulletin News

Repository information expanded (9 Jun 2013)

Greatly expanded information about type specimen repositories and other meteorite collections is now available in the Institutions and Collections section for each meteorite. In 2012, a survey was sent to each institution holding type specimens listed in the Bulletin. They supplied information that includes who runs the collection, how to request samples, and curation policy.

To access this information, look at the detailed information for a single meteorite. All cited collections and repositories will be tabulated in the Institutions and Collections section. Click on the abbreviation for each repository to see the detailed information.
