Global Meteor Observation System

Project Description
The GLOBMET (Global Meteor Observation System) Project (1982-1990) was
one of the MAP projects aimed at intensifying research in Meteor
Geophysics and Meteor Astronomy in the 1980's by making wider use of
the latest achievements in this field and expanding international
coordination in meteor research. The main objective of the project
was to organize a network of meteor observatories, which will provide
experimental data : (1) for testing of models of atmospheric
circulation which include the meteor region; (2) on the influx of
meteors and the distribution of meteoroids in the neighborhood of the
Earth; and (3) for testing models of meteoroid/atmosphere interaction.
