How big was the Chesapeake Bay impact? Insight from numerical modeling

Gareth S Collins, W&, uuml, Kai nnemann, Geology

This article published in <i>Geology</i> reports the results of numerical modeling of the unique impact structure in Chesapeake Bay. By modeling different rheological contrasts between the crystalline basement and overlying pelagic sediments at the time of impact, the authors were able to reproduce the unique impact structures observed in seismic data.
