The first Catalogue of Meteorites from South the US contains new specimens by no means formerly reported, whereas uncertain situations and pseudometeorites were intentionally omitted.
The falling of those items is a random occasion, however the websites the place previous meteorites are discovered are usually concentrated in convinced parts, e.g. within the deflation surfaces in Chile’s Atacama wasteland, as a result of favorable weather stipulations and ablation processes.
Our Catalogue offers simple details on every one specimen like its provenance and where the place it used to be stumbled on (in geographic co-ordinates and with illustrative maps), its reliable identify, its class kind (class, and if acceptable, weathering grade and surprise stage), if it used to be noticeable falling or was once came across accidentally, its overall mass or weight, the establishment the place it truly is held, and an important bibliographic references approximately it.
