|Abstract: ||This monograph describes the meteorite collecting activities of the United States Antarctic Search for Meteorites (ANSMET) expeditions of the 1982-1983 and 1983-1984 field seasons. Descriptions and classifications are given of most specimens collected during the 1982-1983 season and some of those collected in the 1983-1984 season. Articles are included reviewing topics such as Antarctic achondrites, carbonaceous chondrites, meteorite weathering under polar conditions, trace element contents of Antarctic meteorites in comparison with those found elsewhere, and the meteorite pairing problem. One chapter describes the crystalline fabric of the ice surrounding a meteorite discovered emerging at the surface. The Appendix lists all ANSMET specimens classified as of June 1984, in numerical order for each locality and by meteorite class. The Appendix also includes a tentative list of paired specimens.|
