An impact crater is an approximately circular depression in the surface of a planet, moon, or other solid body in the Solar System or elsewhere, formed by the hypervelocity impact of a smaller body. In contrast to volcanic craters, which result from explosion or internal collapse, impact craters typically have raised rims and floors that are lower in elevation than the surrounding .

Odessa Crater - Odessa is a group of 5 meteorite impact craters, the largest of which is meters in diameter. The other 4 are substantially smaller. The Odessa craters are located about 10 miles southwest of the town of Odessa, Texas.

Over crater-producing events have been identified, and this book describes all sites worldwide at which evidence of the impacts can be seen. They range in age from recent craters formed this century to the highly eroded billion-year-old ancient by: The sink in question may therefore be a modified meteorite crater.

Odessa meteorite crater is located The Odessa meteor craters and their geological implications book western Texas, about 10 miles southeast of the town of Odessa. Approxi­ mately 14 feet deep and feet across, the crater is sur­ rounded by a rim of broken rock that accounts for almost half its depth.

The impact of the meteorite that formed the Odessa The Odessa meteor craters and their geological implications book is examined in this numerical study. Extensive information collected from excavation of the site has made it possible to use the Odessa crater as a code validation test, to the extent that a calculated impact can produce equivalent cavity dimensions and by: 2.
