LiDAR Images of Carolina Bays

LiDAR Images of Carolina Bays

The kml file has placemarks with annotations that function as an index to the ~180 "fields" of bays being researched. This was done to minimize the memory hit from the collection of LiDAR images being used. Each placemark's pop-up presents a small jpg of the LiDAR image, and has a link to the actual LiDAR data as a network-linked kmz file. The LiDAR imagery was created in Global Mappe...

Wilkes Land crater

Wilkes Land crater

This a recently found large crater in Antarctica, that was created by a 50 kilometres wide space rock 250 million years ago, and contributed to, or caused the Permian-Triassic extinction, the greatest mass extinction on Earth.
The crater is about 500 kilometres wide, and is now buried beneath 1 kilometre of ice. It was found by looking at differences in density that show up in gravity me...

Darwin Crater

Darwin Crater

Darwin Crater was discovered in 1972 by Ramsay J. Ford. The crater lies 26 km south of Queenstown Tasmania.
The crater was formed by a 20 - 50 m diameter asteroid that struck the Earth approximately 730,000 +/- 40,000 years ago.
The crater has a diameter of 1.2km and is 230 metres deep. It was a lake until about 30 000 years ago, today it is filled with sediment. The crater is ass...

 St. Magnus Bay Crater

St. Magnus Bay Crater

A possible impact crater site is the feature known as St. Magnus Bay in the Shetland Islands.
A massive impact seems to be the cause for the peculiar shape of the bay.
It has a diameter of eleven kilometres and is about 165m deep, which is very deep for the coastal waters in the region. The crater is oval in shape because of the east-west geological compression that the area...

Kebira Crater

The crater is about 19 miles (31 kilometers) wide, more than twice as big as the next largest Saharan crater known. The timing of the impact has not been determined.

The impact that carved Kebira might have created an extensive field of yellow-green silica fragments, known as desert glass and found on the surface between the giant dunes of the Great Sand Sea in southwestern Egypt...
