StrewnLAB Results & Data
The attached bulletin and KML or KMZ files are often used to share geographic data and they are most often used in Google Earth software. KML stands for Keyhole Markup Language, which is an XML notation used to store geographic data in the files. KMZ files are simply a zipped version of KML files, which can also contain image overlays and other referenced content. On most meteor events documented on Strewnify, you will find an attached KMZ file, containing... files contain the StrewnLAB The geographic area where meteorites landed, from a specific meteor event. The strewn field size and shape are affected by the size of the event, the slope of the meteor, and the wind speed and direction. Generally speaking, meteors that come in a steep angle will generate smaller strewn fields than those that come in at a shallow angle. The presence of wind will affect the size and shape of the strewn field by scattering... and mass zones.
