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...
Mjolnir Crater is a recently discovered ringed structure about 24 miles wide on the floor of the Barents Sea. It is the result of the impact, roughly 142.0 ± 2.6 million years ago (Lower Cretaceous), of a 1 -3 Km wide asteroid-like body.
Estimates indicate that the energy released in the impact could have been as high as a million megatons of TNT, resulting in immense (7.7 to 8.7 magn...

Emi Koussi is a huge extinct volcano in the middle of the Sahara Desert. It is the highest of the Tibesti Mountains, located in extreme north Chad. Its crater is 12 miles wide and 4,000 feet deep.
Mahuika crater is a submarine bolide impact crater, 20±2 kilometres wide and over 153 meters deep, on the New Zealand continental shelf, named for the Maori god of fire.
Researchers have found evidence from an Ice Core indicating that the large Impact occurred circa 1443 A.D.
Samples taken from the West Antarctic Siple Dome ice core that date between 1440 and 1448 A.D. show high ...
The Silverpit crater in the North Sea was discovered in 2002 during a seismic oil exploration .
The crater is about 2.4 km wide and surrounded by a set of concentric rings, which extend to about 10 km away from its centre.
Its age is thought to be about 65 million years old, roughly coincident with the formation of the Chicxulub Crater.
The crater currently lies below a ...
Emi Koussi is a high volcano that lies at the south end of the Tibesti Mountains in the central Sahara in northern Chad. The volcano is one of several in the Tibesti massif, and reaches 3415 m in altitude, rising 2.3 km above the surrounding sandstone plains. The volcano is 65 km wide.
