Four previous workshops have discussed the connection between Antarc-tic glaciology and Antarctic meteorites, their stranding surfaces, and differ-ences between Antarctic and non-Antarctic meteorites.

Antarctica contains some of the most productive regions on Earth for collecting meteorites. These small areas of glacial ice are known as meteorite stranding zones, where upward-flowing ice combines with high ablation rates to concentrate large numbers of englacially transported meteorites onto their by: 7.

They are common weathering minerals found on rocks (including meteorites) on Antarctic ice sheet [1,2,3,4]. The water necessary for the reaction is produced by melting of ice below the dark-colored meteorites which can heat up to a few degrees above 0 °C due to insolation heating during wind-free summer days [5,6].Author: Anna Losiak, Arkadiusz Derkowski, Aleksander Skala, Jerzy Trzcinski.

Bill Cassidy was the founder of the U.S. Antarctic Search for Meteorites project (ANSMET), and led meteorite recovery expeditions in Antarctica from His searches have resulted in the collection of thousands of meteorite specimens from the ice.

models of Antarctic meteorite stranding surfaces and how meteorite investigations can help to learn about the Antarctic ice. This book is a very valuable introduction to meteoritics for all persons generally interested in these rocks but does, naturally, focus on Antarctic meteorites.

The book contains. Antarctic meteorite, any of a large group of meteorites that have been collected in Antarctica, first by Japanese expeditions and subsequently by U.S. and European teams since the discovery of meteorite concentrations there in Although meteorites fall more or less uniformly over Earth ’s surface.

Meteorites Found on the Blue Ice. SinceANSMET has recovered more t specimens from meteorite stranding surfaces along the Transantarctic mountains. The total number of Antarctic meteorites is closer to 25, when you include Japanese collections (beginning in ) and European collections.

Antarctic Meteorite Sample Collection and Curation Pairing. Pairing of Antarctic meteorites is an enormous challenge due to the large number of samples that are recovered each year, and the fact that ANSMET returns to dense collection areas over as many as 10 seasons in some cases.

We make our best effort to maintain updated and accurate pairing, but sometimes this process is slow. Often, the ice flows directly to the sea. But some Antarctic ice gets hung up on the Transantarctic Mountain Chain, crashing against the rock like a slow-motion wave.

The upward motion of the ice brings buried meteorites to the surface, where wind and sun expose them by brushing away the top layer of snow and ice. The Workshop on Antarctic Meteorite Stranding Surfaces was convened to explore this potential and to devise a course of action that could be recommended to granting agencies.
