Investigation of impact melt clasts in allochthonous crater-fill deposits of the Steen River impact structure
impact structures, impact melt clasts
The Steen River impact structure (SRIS) is a buried complex crater located in northwestern Alberta that is thought to have formed around 91 ± 7 Ma. The goal of this study was to investigate the impact melt clasts in the SRIS breccia to determine their mechanisms of formation and emplacement.
