MetBase holds the world's largest compilation of meteorite data. The new MetBase will be released exclusively online. No more installations, nor more updates. You will be able to explore the new MetBase with any device that has internet access and a browser. You can subscribe to MetBase with an affordable, annual fee.
The database is constantly updated, improved and expanded in the background. Almost every time you return to MetBase, the database will have grown. But for you, the interface will always be familiar and simple to use as always.
The new MetBase was built from scientists for scientists. An entirely new and intuitive interface lets you instantly explore all the data stored in MetBase. A novel filter & select section allows for quick presentation of exactly the data you want to see.
And this is just the beginning. We are adding a series of new and exciting tools to work with data.
Only a glimpse of the large amount of data stored in MetBase:
For example, MetBase bibliography of meteoritics and planetary sciences is the most comprehensive compilation with presently more than 90,000 keyword- and object-indexed references to articles, abstracts, books, catalogues, and special publications on meteorites, lunar rocks, meteors, impact cratering, tektites, martian geology, asteroids, exobiology and origin of the solar system, published between 1492 and today.
In addition to all the data stored in MetBase, we will add a new Resources section. There you will find basic cosmochemical information and introductions to the field. This will help students, but also researchers who quickly want detailed information, such as the condensation temperature and solar or CI abundance of Mn.
