The above image is an interactive map showing the locations of terrestrial impact craters.
Each region can be enlarged and each cratering location is linked to a description of the crater.

Authenticated impact craters on these maps are based in part on the work of the Regional Geophysics Section of Natural Resources Canada and the University of New Brunswick Department of Geology. We refer interested readers to their site for additional information: http://www.unb.ca/passc/ImpactDatabase/
This site is designed to explore the environmental and
biological consequences associated with these various impact events. This
is a new area of study, so information of this type is not yet available for
many impact craters. However, as new results appear in the peer-reviewed
literature, details for each crater will be added to this
