|Abstract: ||This monograph describes the meteorite collecting activities of the United States Antarctic Search for Meteorites (ANSMET) expeditions during the 1984-1985, 1985-1986, and 1986-1987 field seasons. Descriptions and classifications are given of most specimens collected during those expeditions with the exceptions of the types 4, 5, and 6 ordinary chondrites, whose properties are tabulated. Two articles are included that summarize data on the terrestrial ages and thermoluminescence properties of Antarctic meteorites. The Appendix lists all ANSMET specimens classified as of June 1987, in numerical order for each locality and by meteorite class.|
