PROBABLE IMPACT CRATERS/STRUCTURES*

by: Charles O’Dale

*In my articles I use the term crater to define a circular impact depression and the termstructure to define an impact crater that is severely altered by erosion.

  •  Probable: geological and geophysical studies established reasonable evidence, possibly with unconfirmed reports of shock features in abstracts, but the definite shock features and/or meteoritic material is not well documented.
