Abstract

The Manson impact structure, one of about 20 such structures in the United States that have been confirmed as being of impact origin, has been shown to have an age of approximately 74 m.y. It consists of a well-preserved complex intact crater, almost circular, with a diameter of some 37 km, centred just N of Manson in south-central Iowa. A multidisciplinary study of this structure is here reported in 22 papers.
