Product description

Review

"I fully recommend this book to anyone interested in impacts and their geological influence.  Impact Cratering is first class, fascinating reading to the expert, I am sure, as well as the novice (like your reviewer), and destined to be the standard reference for years to come."  (Geological Journal, 4 April 2014)

This book is now the single best starting point for anyone interested in almost any aspect of impact cratering.  Summing Up: Highly recommended.  Upper–division undergraduates and  above.   (Choice, 1 November 2013)

From the Back Cover

Impact cratering is arguably the most ubiquitous geological process in the Solar System. It has played an important role in Earth s history, shaping the geological landscape, affecting the evolution of life, and generating economic resources. However, it was only in the latter half of the 20th century that the importance of impact cratering as a geological process was recognized and only during the past couple of decades that the study of meteorite impact structures has moved into the mainstream. This book seeks to fill a critical gap in the literature by providing an overview text covering broad aspects of the impact cratering process and aimed at graduate students, professionals and researchers alike. It introduces readers to the threat and nature of impactors, the impact cratering process, the products, and the effects both destructive and beneficial. A series of chapters on the various techniques used to study impact craters provide a foundation for anyone studying impact craters for the first time.
