The distribution of megablocks in the Ries crater, Germany: Remote sensing, field investigation, and statistical analyses

Sturm, Sebastian; Kenkmann, Thomas; Willmes, Malte; Posges, Gisela; Hiesinger, Harold

Description

The Ries crater is a well-preserved, complex impact crater that has been extensively used in the study of impact crater formation processes across the solar system. However, its geologic structure, especially the megablock zone, still poses questions regarding crater formation mechanics. The megablock zone, located between the inner crystalline ring and outer, morphologic crater rim, consists of allochthonous crystalline and sedimentary blocks, Bunte Breccia deposits, patches of suevite, and...[Show more]
