dc.description.abstract 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 scale of tens of kilometers. The most dramatic effect of such a large impact would perhaps be the generation of a large tidal wave. This question can be studied by analogy with other, better-known phenomena. en
