|A circular depression deep in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) has been confirmed as the first known impact crater in central Africa, a new study says. The find brings the number of known meteor craters on Earth to 182.|
The so-called Luizi structure was first described in a German geological report from 1919. But without further fieldwork, it was impossible to say for s...
|This crater is located inside Virunga National Park, in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. The main crater is about two km (6,562 ft.) wide and usually contains a lava lake. The crater presently has two distinct cooled lava benches within the crater walls - one at about 3175m (10,400 ft) and a lower one at about 2975m (9,800 ft).||04/03/2011||575|
|The Kamil Crater in Egypt was found by V. De Michele in 2009 using Google Earth. An article in Science Express today announced the results of a 2010 expedition to the site. The site is indeed an impact crater, 45 meters in diameter and 16 meters deep, created by an iron meteorite 1.3 meters in diameter. Over 5,000 meteorite fragments were identified, totaling 1.7 tons! Owing to the existance ...||08/08/2010||731|
|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...||07/07/2010||1,323|

|Two symmetrical pit craters side-by-side, one of the few examples of this type of crater in the U.S. The pit craters, which were lava conduits, were formed by explosions and then a collapse.||11/11/2008||1,090|

Villagers in southern Peru were struck by a mysterious illness after a meteorite made a fiery crash to Earth in their area, regional authorities said on Monday. At around midday on Saturday, villagers were startled by an explosion and a fireball that many were convinced was an airplane crashing near their remote village, located in the high Andes department of ...
|It is a volcanic area in Konya in Turkey. There are a lot of crater and crater lake closely to this area. I counted approximately 51 craters in this view.||08/27/2007||1,259|

A SELECTION OF OVER 60 METEORCRATERS AND IMPACTS ON EARTH
|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 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...

U S satellites detected the impact of a bolide near Bodiabo in Siberia at 16:48:56 UTC on 24 September 2002.<> The object was simultaneously detected by b...
|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...
|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...
