Figures & Tables
The Chesapeake Bay impact structure is perhaps the best documented example of a small group of multilayer, marine-target impacts formed in continental shelves or beneath epeiric seas. In this multidisciplinary study, new sedimentological and stratigraphical data and results—mainly from three Chesapeake Bay brim cores (Watkins School, Langley, and Bayside)—are compared to and compiled with key crater core data. This volume provides detailed understanding of the impact-related processes and sedimentation, their interaction and relative timing, and their products in the "brim," the target-sediment layer in the area outside the transient cavity.
