Summary
This major study of crater morphology examines the physics of impact cratering, the geologic processes associated with it, and its role in planetary evolution. Melosh outlines landmark events in the history of impact cratering and places modern developments in historical perspective. Since important impact structures exist on our planet as well as on bodies in the solar system, this valuable contribution will serve as a vital reference in the diverse fields of geology, paleontology and planetary science
