Goldfinger Posted April 12, 2007 Share Posted April 12, 2007 Hi Guys: Does anyone have access to information or reports on the weathering of meteorites? As you know- most of the meteorites found in this country are located in your western states like Az- Nev- N Mex,etc. I can certainly understand why since there's a lot of arid BLM land with little or no vegetation where one can roam about. My question is how much faster do meteorites weather in the other climates? Some meteorites have been known to have fallen 25,000 years ago. (or longer) If those same meteorites had fallen in the midwest where we get more precipitation- would we still be able to find pieces of them or would they have weathered away into nothing?
