Sample References Search
To use the sample search you must enter the three letter prefix, followed by the number - no space in between. For example, Allan Hills 84001 should be typed "ALH84001".
This page was created to serve several purposes:
- Allow researchers to learn what has been published about samples from our collection they may be interested in studying.
- Allow researchers to search for the publications of a specific author or scientist reporting results from meteorites in our collection.
- Determine which meteorite samples have also been studied in association with other meteorites; e.g., search for associated samples in each reference.
This search capability will also be useful to the curation staff and committee members who may be evaluating sample requests, because the reference database is a quick way of learning what analyses or
studies have been completed already.
