Yahoo Map of Sirente crater

Info Map Comments (0) Related Files

The Sirente crater field of more than 20 extremely well preserved structures was discovered during the late 1990s and was originally though to be due to a very recent meteoritic impact (about 1500 years ago).
However, further investigations now points to it being a water reservoir for human pastoral activity. Another plausible alternative is that it is periglacial feature (i.e. Pingo).
The largest crater, filled with water, has a maximum rim-to-rim diameter of 140 meter.
A prominent ridge encircles the lake.
No meteoritic fragments have ever been found.
