Description:
The author provides for geoscientists a detailed introduction and overview of impact processes, crater formation, and shock metamorphism.

It is intended for geoscientists of all kinds: students, professors and professional geologists who may unexpectedly encounter an impact structure in the next field area or in the next drill core.
