Hello All,

Regardsing the Gondwana Buster, I have found it! I forgot that I have
photocopies of a GSA Today whic listed over _200_ impact craters and fields.
 Ref will bbe cited below.

Called the Aranguainha Dome, in Brazil. Located at 16degrees 47 min S and 52d
59m W. It is only  40 Km in diameter and is dated at 247.0 +/- 5.5 Ma.

Later when I have time and if there is sufficient interest, I will post a few
other impacts that may have been coincident with this one!


Ref:

Grieve, R., Rupert, J., Smith, J., Therriault, A., 1995: The record of
terrestrial impact cratering. GSA Today, v.5, no.10.

VERY interesting!
