How the Morasko craters were formed? The revision of existing opinions regarding the formation of depressions in the reserved area near Poznan
Languages of publication
Althought the first Morasko meteorite has been found over 100 years ago, the discussion about the Morasko strewn field and cratersis is still ongoing. In this paper, the revision of existing opinions on the Morasko craters formation and origin is conducted regarding to numerical modeling results and current knowlage about impact cratering procssess.
