Re: deep water = less ejecta?
OK...so the Chicxulub crater is shallow because the bolide hit in deep
water...thus sending massive water into the atmosphere and, at the same
time, cushioning the blow to underlying solid materials.
"Cushioning"? Wouldn't all those cubic kilometers of suddenly vaporized
water have the opposite effect?
