Distal Impact Ejecta Layers: A Record of Large Impacts in Sedimentary Deposits (Impact Studies) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Impact cratering is an important geological process on all solid planetary bodies, and, in the case of Earth, may have had major climatic and biological effects. Most terrestrial impact craters have been erased or modified beyond recognition. However, major impacts throw ejecta over large areas of the Earth's surface. Recognition of these impact ejecta layers can help fill in the gaps in the terrestrial cratering record and at the same time provide direct correlation between major impacts and other geological events, such as climatic changes and mass extinctions. This book provides the first summary of known distal impact ejecta layers

Synopsis:

This book provides the first summary of known terrestrial distal impact ejecta layers, which although often erased or modified beyond easy recognition, can be vital evidence in helping to plot major climatic and biological effects of meteor impact.
