Activity on Nyiragongo, 19 June 2007

On June 19, 2007, Mount Nyiragongo released a plume. The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA’s Terra satellite took this picture the same day. In this image, the blue-tinted plume blows over Lake Kivu toward the southeast. The plume’s light color suggests that it consists primarily of water vapor. A bright, opaque white puff at the volcano’s summit could be part of the...

Silverpit crater

Silverpit crater

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 ...

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...

Tswaing meteor crater

Tswaing meteor crater

Forty kilometers north of Pretoria lies a ring of hills a kilometer in diameter and 100 meters high. These hills are the walls of an impact crater left by an asteroid which hit there some 200 000 years ago. The Tswaing crater is similar in size to the well-known Barringer meteor crater in Arizona. The crater walls at Tswaing were originally about twice as high as they are today.

 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...

New Quebec

New Quebec

This aerial view looks west over the 250-meter-deep circular lake that fills the New Quebec Crater, a relatively large, well-preserved crater. The interior topography of the crater is covered by lake sediments that inhibit a determination of whether the structure has a small central uplift. The rocks involved in this impact event are ancient and strongly deformed gneisses of the Precambrian shi...

Wolfe Creek Meteorite Crater, Australia

Wolfe Creek Meteorite Crater, Australia

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...
