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...
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.

Samples taken from the West Antarctic Siple Dome ice core that date between 1440 and 1448 A.D. show high ...
The 35-40-km diameter Azuara impact structure is located in northeast Spain roughly 50 km south of Zaragoza. Its age is estimated to be Upper Eocene or Oligocene, though ages of 130 and 40 Million years have been offered. It is possible that Azuara and the close by Rubiela de la Cérida impact craters formed during the same event.
