The Meteoritical Society

The Meteoritical Society is a non-profit scholarly organization founded in 1933 to promote research and education in planetary science with emphasis on studies of meteorites and other extraterrestrial materials that further our understanding of the origin and history of the solar system. The membership of the society comprises over 1000 scientists and amateur enthusiasts from over 52 countries who are interested in a wide range of planetary science topics. Members interest include meteorites, cosmic dust, asteroids and comets, natural satellites, planets, impact events, and the origins of the Solar System. The Meteoritical Society is the organization that records all known meteorites in its Meteoritical Bulletin. The Society also publishes one of the world's leading planetary science journals, Meteoritics & Planetary Science, and is a cosponsor with the Geochemical Society of the renowned journal Geochimica et Cosmochimica Acta. The Meteoritical Society is the organization that records all known meteorites in its Meteoritical Bulletin. The Society also publishes one of the world's leading planetary science journals, Meteoritics and Planetary Science. The Society organizes annual meetings and workshops.

The Society presents or cosponsors six awards each year, The Leonard Medal, awarded since 1966 in honor of the first President of the Society is given for outstanding contributions to the science of meteoritics and closely allied fields. The Barringer Medal, awarded since 1984 and cosponsored by the Barringer Crater Company, recognizes outstanding work in the field of impact cratering and/or work that has led to a better understanding of impact phenomena. The Nier Prize recognizes outstanding research in meteoritics and allied fields by young under age 35 scientists. It has been awarded since 1996. The Paul Pellas-Graham Ryder Award, cosponsored by the Planetary Geology Division of the Geological Society of America, is given for undergraduate and graduate students who are first author of a planetary science paper published in a peer-reviewed scientific journal. It has been given since 2000. The Meteoritical Society's Service Award is for members who have advanced the goals of the Society to promote research and education in meteoritics and planetary science in ways other than by conducting scientific research. The first award was for 2006. The Gordon A. McKay Award is for the best oral presentation by a student at the annual meeting of the society. The first award will be presented in 2009.
