Impact cratering is a geological process that is still rather unappreciated by the geological community, despite the fact that on all other planets and satellites with a solid surface impact cratering is the most important surface-modifying process. About 150 impact structures have been recognized on Earth to date. To put the studies of the Manson crater in a proper framework, we review some fundamental principles of impacts and how to recognize impact craters. The formation conditions of impact craters lead to pressure and temperature conditions in the target rocks that are significantly different from those reached during any internal terrestrial...
