However, because over 99% of the continent is covered in ice, Antarctica’s geology is not known in detail, and our understanding of the rocks and geological structures beneath the ice must be inferred from the limited area of rock (roughly % of the continent) that is exposed at the surface as well as from remote sensing technologies. These.

Meteorite weathering is the terrestrial alteration of a meteorites date from the oldest times in the Solar System and are by far the oldest material available on our planet. Despite their age, they are vulnerable to the terrestrial environment. Water, chlorine and oxygen attack meteorites as soon they reach the ground.

Weathering scales. In order to quantify the degree of. The name Antarctica is the romanised version of the Greek compound word ἀνταρκτική (antarktiké), feminine of ἀνταρκτικός (antarktikós), meaning "opposite to the Arctic", "opposite to the north".

Aristotle wrote in his book Meteorology about an Antarctic region in c. Marinus of Tyre reportedly used the name in his unpreserved world map from the 2nd century : 14, km² (5, sq mi). terrestrial weathering effects is therefore crucial to studies of Antarctic meteorites (e.g., Gooding, a,b), in order to prevent terrestrial alterations from being misinterpreted as primary compositional attributes of the meteorites.

The present procedure for classifying the weathering of Antarctic meteorites is based on the amount of rust. Antarctic Meteorites LAPa Lunar basalt collected from La Paz icefield. The US funded collection and curation of Antarctic meteorites, or the US Antarctic Meteorite program, is a cooperative effort among NASA, the National Science Foundation (NSF) and ANSMET, and the Smithsonian Institution (SI).

The NSF has decades of experience exploring this harsh environment. Antarctic meteorites (Meteorite Weathering Categories ). Weathering of Antarctic meteorites is controlled primarily by low-temperature aqueous geochemistry and can be separated into its original and secondary components.
