The atomic mass evaluation - present and future

Abstract : The atomic mass evaluation (AME) is a reliable resource for the values related to the atomic masses. Since the publication of the latest version of AME in 2003, a large amount of new data emerged from mass measurements performed by Penning traps and storage rings, as well as from nuclear decay and reaction energy measurements. A new project called "AME-future" is currently ongoing and it is aimed at creation of new mass tables that will be published in 2013: AME2013. The present status of AME and its working structure are presented. With the newly included data, the mass surface for nuclei far from the valley of stability seems to lie higher than was anticipated earlier. The impact on astrophysical applications is discussed. Some examples describing correlations between masses are presented.
