Impact cratering is arguably the most ubiquitous geologicalprocess in the Solar System. It has played an important role inEarth?s history, shaping the geological landscape, affectingthe evolution of life, and generating economic resources. However,it was only in the latter half of the 20th century that theimportance of impact cratering as a geological process wasrecognized and only during the past couple of decades that thestudy of meteorite impact structures has moved into the mainstream.This book seeks to fill a critical gap in the literature byproviding an overview text covering broad aspects of the impactcratering process and aimed at graduate students, professionals andresearchers alike. It introduces readers to the threat and natureof impactors, the impact cratering process, the products, and theeffects ? both destructive and beneficial. A series ofchapters on the various techniques used to study impact cratersprovide a foundation for anyone studying impact craters for thefirst time.
