A strewnfield is a geographic area representing a field where meteorites have been strewn. In other words it is the area of land that they landed on after entering our atmosphere. This gives finders a designated area to look for more of the material and offers science a chance to study and determine certain information about a fall. ie, what size landed where and why?
One would find a meteorite from a particular fall within this certain area we call a Strewnfield .
