  Tons to add to the discussion: 1, professional interpretation,
and 2, buckyballs. Buckyballs are big deals, since they can
_only_ form at degrees of pressure that are on the scale of a
bolide or metoric impact within a small scale area, such as in
thepressure chambers used to simulated them and other such nano
and bucky structures, including diamonds.

<In sea level? How?>

  What with plasma burn, heat, and acid rain, not to mention
terrestrial and aquatic shockwaves, the sea would be very much
affected, not to mention the poles and coastal glacier formation
(near-, ant- and panarctic in the Permian only, I think) would
cause glaciers and the poles to shed millions or more tons of
ice into the sea, melt, etc, and cause the sea to rise. This
would be aggravated if the impact occured _at_ the poles.
Otherwise, if there was not enough ice present in the regions to
be effected this way by the impact, if it hit the sea, the
plasma would cause billions of tons of water to evaporate,
dropping global levels by hundreds of meters, if not a kilometer
(I'm guessing).
