Working Group on Meteor Shower Nomenclature (2023-present)

The commission has established a Working Group on Meteor Shower Nomenclature with the objective to formulate a descriptive list of established meteor showers that can receive official names during the next IAU General Assembly. This task aims to uniquely identify all existing meteor showers and establish unique names: as an example of the value of such a definitive catalogue would be to facilitate the establishment of associations between meteor showers and parent bodies among the many Near-Earth Objects that are being discovered.

Members of the group:

Josep Trigo-Rodriguez (chair)

Tadeusz J. Jopek

Diego Janches

Maria Hajdukova

Gulchekhra I. Kokhirova

Quanzhi Ye

Lubos Neslusan

Regina Rudawska

Masahiro Koseki

The Task Group on Meteor Shower Nomenclature was established at the IAU General Assembly in Prague on August 24, 2006. During the IAU General Assembly in Rio de Janeiro, Brasil, in August of 2009, the Task Group has been transformed into the Working Group on Meteor Shower Nomenclature.
