Large Meteorite Impacts and Planetary Evolution II. - 464 S., zahlr. Abb.,
Impact specialists, or any other scientists interested in this field of geoscience and planetology will appreciate the wide range of topics in this book: impact cratering mechanics; geophysical signatures of impact structures (e.g., Chesapeake Bay, Chicxulub, Mjolnir, Barents Sea, Sudbury, Slate Islands); formation and differentiation of impact melts (e.g., Sudbury); shock metamorphism and shock attenuation (e.g., Slate Islands); terrestrial impact structures under investigation (e.g., Morokweng, Lyckesele, Popigai); and the origin of carbon, including diamonds, in impact deposits (e.g., Sudbury, Chicxulub ejecta). This special volume is the outcome of a second international conference on Large Meteorite Impacts and Planetary Evolution (Sudbury 1997) attended by more than 150 scientists representing about 15 countries. The volume contains 33 papers. Presentations on the Sudbury Structure are introduced by a summary of the understanding of this structure before the 1997 conference and are followed by concluding remarks outlining unresolved problems. This volume contains more than 32 papers of interest to all geoscientists who investigate the effects of impacts and planetology.

HEIDE, F. & WLOTZKA, F. (1995):

Meteorites. Messengers from Space. - 231 S., 111 Abb., 22 Tab.,
Meteorites - as well as shooting stars and meteors - result from a collision of a solid body from space with our Earth, but only meteorites are able to penetrate the Earth's protective shield, the atmosphere, and fall to the Earth's surface. Apart from lunar samples, they are the only materials from beyond the Earth which we can probe and study.This book gives a concise and up-to-date description of meteorites - fall phenomena, chemical and mineral composition, classification - as well as a discussion of their formation and origin, which also tells us the story of the formation of our planetary system. The text is understandable for laymen and students, but can also be used as an introduction to the field for students and scientists.

Neuschwanstein: Der Meteorit aus den Bayrischen Alpen. 32 S., 8 Abb.,
[Am späten Abend des 6. April 2002 wurden die Menschen im bayrisch-österreichischen Grenzgebiet Zeugen eines ebenso seltenen wie spektakulären Naturschauspiels: eine Feuerkugel erhellte die Nacht im Raum Garmisch-Patenkirchen für wenige Minuten. Der Himmelskörper zerfiel am Ende seine Fluges und wurde wenige Monate später aufgrund exakter Berechnungen der Flugbahn gefunden. Bisher sind drei Teilstücke bekannt geworden. Das erste wird hier beschrieben.]

KOEBERL, C. & ANDERSON, R.R: (1996):

The Manson Impact Structure, Iowa: Anatomy of an Impact Crater. - 476 S., div. Abb.,
A comprehensive description of research on the 38-k-diameter Manson impact structure in north-central Iowa. This structure, one of about 20 confirmed impact structures in the U.S., was initially suspected as one factor in the K-T boundary drama. The possible association with the K-T boundary led to an increase in research on the Manson structure in the 1980s. Then, in 1991 – 1992 the Iowa Geological Survey Bureau and the U.S. Geological Survey conducted a Manson core drilling program. The results of many of the investigations on samples of Manson cores and related studies are reported in this volume. The contents of the volume range from geophysical studies of the crater structure to detailed mineralogical, petrological, and geochemical investigations of rocks from the cores, and from the documentation of post-impact hydrothermal events to the study of possible distal impact deposits in South Dakota and Nebraska. These studies also have produced a more accurate age of Manson at about 74 Ma, discrediting theories that the Manson impact was associated with the K-T boundary events.

KOEBERL, C. & MacLEOD, K.G. (2002):

Catastrophic Events and Mass Extinctions: Impacts and Beyond. - 749 S., zahlr. Abb.,
This volume contains the proceedings of the fourth of an informal series of meetings on mass extinctions, global catastrophes, and the geological and biological consequences of large-scale impact events. Previous meetings were held in 1981 and 1988 at Snowbird, Utah, and in 1994 Houston, Texas. The present meeting, held in 2000 in Vienna, Austria, concentrated on if (and how) short-term, high-energy events influence the biological evolution on Earth. Recently, a lot of attention has been focused on the Permian-Triassic extinction, at which about 80% of all species became extinct. The cause for this global catastrophe is currently unknown. Other short-term events (e.g., late Devonian, Triassic-Jurassic, late Eocene) in the stratigraphic record of Earth are now receiving unprecedented attention. The more than 50 papers in the volume discuss the character and causes of mass extinctions and catastrophic events in the history of our planet.

MINERALIENTAGE MÜNCHEN (2014):

Das Themenbuch: Meteoriten. - 216 Seiten mit zahlr. farb. Abb.,
Seit fünfzig Jahren ist die MUNICH SHOW Organisator der erfolgreichsten deutschen Steine-Ausstellung. Diese in vielen Jahren gesammelte Kompetenz rund um Steine aller Arten präsentieren die Autoren der MUNICH SHOW jetzt in einem einzigartigen Sammelband: Alles über „Meteorite – Steine aus dem Weltall“. Das Buch enthält zahlreiche, zum Teil spektakuläre Abbildungen, für die die MUNICH SHOW bekannt ist. Die Autoren stellen die bekanntesten Meteorite der Erde vor: den Neuschwanstein-Meteoriten, den Jesenice- und den Tscheljabinsk-Meteoriten und die spannende Geschichte des Meteoriten von Beverbruch. Sie erklären, wie Meteorite und das Ende der Dinosaurier zusammenhängen und ordnen ihr Wissen um Meteorite als Teil des weltumfassenden Steinesystems ein. Natürlich verraten sie auch, wie und wo man heute die besten und schönsten Meteorite findet – ein „Muss“-Buch für alle Steine-Liebhaber.

Impacts in Precambrian Shields. - 336 S., 98 Abb., 43 Tab.,
This multiauthor book is a compilation of fourteen papers that result from activities within the scientific programme "Response of the Earth System to Impact Processes" (IMPACT) of the European Science Foundation. The program deals with all aspects of meteorite impact research and operates through workshops, exchange programs and short courses. Most of the papers are initiated from the 4th IMPACT workshop "Meteorite Impacts in Precambrian Shields" that took place in Lappajärvi, Finland, in 2000. The volume begins with a detailed view of thirty confirmed meteorite impact structures found in the Fennoscandian Shield and its nearest surroundings. The following papers describe impact structures in different areas.

The Chesapeake Bay Crater. Geology and Geophysics of a Late Eocene Submarine Impact Structure. - 522 S., 207 Abb., 42 Tab.; mit CD-ROM.

The authors have synthesized 16 years of geological and geophysical studies which document an 85-km-wide impact crater buried 500 m beneath Chesapeake Bay in south eastern Virginia, USA. In doing so, they have integrated extensive seismic reflection profiling and deep core drilling to analyze the structure, morphology, gravimetrics, sedimentology, petrology, geochemistry, and paleontology of this submarine structure. Of special interest are a detailed comparison with other terrestrial and extraterrestrial craters, as well as a conceptual model and computer simulation of the impact. The extensive illustrations encompass more than 150 line drawings and core photographs. An accompanying CD-ROM includes selected seismic profiles, scaled cross sections, detailed maps, and downhole geophysical logs.
