Identification of impact craters due to the environment
Languages of publication
It seems that the only correct way to identify impact craters is a combination of theoretical analysis, visual observation and experimental analysis, which are inextricably linked to the environment in which the crater was formed. Undoubtedly, the shock metamorphism is an essential diagnostic tool for the identification of the crater. The depth of water is a major problem in the formation of the marine craters.
