  • Phinney, William C.; Simonds, Charles H. (Pergamon Press, 1976)
    To increase our understanding of the formation of impact craters and the properties of their ejecta there must be an integration of data from theoretical models, cratering experiments, and observations of natural impact ...
  • Schmieder, Martin, 1978-; https://orcid.org/0000-0002-1458-5148; Kring, David A. (David Allen) (Mary Ann Liebert, Inc., 2020-01-20)
    This article presents a current (as of September 2019) list of recommended ages for proven terrestrial impact structures (n = 200) and deposits (n = 46) sourced from the primary literature. High-precision impact ages can ...
  • Hörz, Friedrich, 1940-; See, T. H.; Murali, A. V.; Blanchard, Douglas P. (Lunar and Planetary Institute, 1989)
    We confirmed the initial observations of Spencer (1933a,b) that two distinct impact melts coexist at the 90-m-diameter Wabar crater, Saudi Arabia A dark or "black" melt contains on the order of 4% meteoritic contamination, ...

H.; Solomon, Sean C.; Smith, David E.; Lemoine, Frank G.; Mazarico, Erwan; Sabaka, Terence J.; Goossens, Sander J.; Melosh, H. Jay; Phillips, R. J. (Roger J.), 1940-; Asmar, Sami W.; Konopliv, Alexander S.; Williams, James G.; Sori, Michael M.; Soderblom, Jason M.; Miljković, Katarina; Andrews-Hanna, Jeffrey C.; Nimmo, Francis; Kiefer, Walter S.; https://orcid.org/0000-0001-6741-5460 (American Association for the Advancement of Science, 2015-10-30)
    Observations from the Gravity Recovery and Interior Laboratory (GRAIL) mission indicate a marked change in the gravitational signature of lunar impact structures at the morphological transition, with increasing diameter, ...
  • Strelitz, Richard (Pergamon Press, 1979)
    Probability arguments would indicate that about 70% of the meteorite influx would land in the oceans, yet there is no obvious and compelling evidence for such events, especially for craters that would, on land, be of the ...
  • Marchi, Simone; Ermakov, A. I.; Raymond, Carol A.; Fu, Roger R. (Roger Rennan); O’Brien, D. P.; Bland, M. T.; Ammannito, E.; De Sanctis, M. Cristina; Bowling, T.; Schenk, Paul M.; Scully, J. E. C.; Buczkowski, Debra L.; Williams, David A. (Planetary geologist); Hiesinger, H. (Harald); Russell, C. T. (Christopher T.) (Nature, 2016-07-26)
    Asteroids provide fundamental clues to the formation and evolution of planetesimals. Collisional models based on the depletion of the primordial main belt of asteroids predict 10–15 craters 4400 km should have formed on ...
