List G - Meteorites
The notes under Searching attempt to guide the searcher in the use of the list. Searchers might also read the notes on Indexing for further clues but should be aware that these notes reflect current practice which in some cases differs from past practice. Further notes on specific terms are in the body of the Thesaurus and additional notes on searching are in the GeoRef Thesaurus, 11th edition Introduction section on searching beginning on page x. Information specific to searching and the individual list topics is included, e.g., a section including meteorites begins on page xii.
Under Indexing the current indexing practice is given. These notes should be read along with the instructions under the individual terms in the body of the Thesaurus.
Geographic locations are not used with meteorites except where terrestrial processes or materials such as ice fields or weathering are discussed. An exception is the term Antarctica which is used with all meteorites and meteorite groups found there. Meteorites known to be from the Moon or Mars are used with those bodies where the discussion is about the Moon or Mars.
