Analysis of oblique impact features. A case study of Porzadzie, Jaszczulty and Ochudno structures
Languages of publication
It’s considered that one half of all projectiles are striking surface of planets at the angle lower than 45°. Our knowledge of oblique impact events is based on computer modelling, laboratory experiments and observation of craters on the Moon, Mars, Venus and other celestial bodies. Recent discovery in northeast Poland, reveals at least four structures with features reserved for low-angle impacts. In this article we show and explain them using high-quality laser air scanning data (LiDAR) in comparison to results of experiments and similar real known objects on other planets. Also we try to verify by analyzing historical sources if multiple impact event could occur in our area and, if it was noticed and reported in the papers.
