Shock effects in iron meteorites – Morasko and Jankowo Dolne meteorites
Languages of publication
Iron meteorites are the only ones to be linked with terrestrial impact craters. As studies show, over half of all iron meteorites shows signs of being shocked some time in their history to pressures over 130 kb. This paper is a short review of main shock metamorphism features in iron meteorites. Mechanisms leading to forming shock metamorphism features are described and examples of application of shock metamorphism studies are given.
