Those I have already include: the Richat, Tenoumer and Temimichat craters located in the Sahara, the Tunguska site in Siberia, the Talemzane Crater in Algeria and the Yucatan crater.
I would dearly love to find other evidence of layered, "bullseye" type crater with concentric rings, approximately 1/4 to 2 miles in diameter.
". . . suggests that the network geometry is determined by the external flow field rather than flow within the streams themselves . . ." WTF????? Perhaps this is just beyond me.
New evidence supporting theory of extraterrestrial impact found
An 18-member international team of researchers that includes James Kennett, professor of earth science at UC Santa Barbara, has discovered melt-glass material in a thin layer of sedimentary rock in Pennsylvania, South Carolina, and Syria. According to the researchers, the material –– which dates back nearly 13,000 years –– was formed at temperatures of 1,700 to 2,200 degrees Celsius (3,100 to 3,600 degrees Fahrenheit), and is the result of a cosmic body impacting Earth.
EVIDENCE FOR A LIGHTNING-STRIKE ORIGIN OF THE EDEOWIE GLASS
The Edeowie glass was first described by Haines
et al. (1) as a possible impact melt on the basis of Pla-
nar Deformation Features (PDFs) in quartz grains that
were imbedded within the vesicular melts, and the
presence of lechatelierite. However, the morphology
and distribution of the glasses are inconsistent with an
impact origin. The presumed PDFs are probably planar
cracking, and lechatelierite, baddeleyite, and perhaps
even coesite and schtishovite can occur in fulgurites.
Proof is always nice, for regardless of whichever particular viewpoint.
* Have you guys thought of any kind of experiment to test any of these electrical rock forming theories?
I think pebbles start out roundish and wear flat, rather than angular and wearing round.
