Australia has some of the best examples of meteorite impact sites anywhere in the world and Wolfe Creek Crater, Western Australia, is one of the most spectacular. The floor lies 55 metres below the rim of the crater, and although partly buried by windblown sand, the rim of the crater rises to 25 metres above the surrounding plain.
I thought it was the second largest in the world bu...
Mount Connor (also known as Attila or Artilla), reaching to 859 m (2,500 ft) above sea level and to 300 m (985 ft) above ground level, is located southeast of Lake Amadeus in the southwest corner of the Northern Territory, 88 km east-south-east of Uluru at the border of the vast Curtin Springs cattle station. Mount Conner is a flat-topped and horseshoe-shaped mountain and can easily be confused...
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...
Mount Napier, one of the youngest volcanoes in Australia, is a composite lava shield with a superimposed scoria cone. The cone rises 150 m above the surrounding plains to an elevation of 440 m making it the highest point on the Western District Plains of Victoria. It erupted about 5,290 BC
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).
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 ...
