... to similar studies of cored intervals of the Cape Charles borehole. The bulk mineralogical studies reveal quartz, feldspars (microcline and albite), muscovite, smectite-vermiculite clays, and kaolinite with variable quantities of pyrite, zeolites, calcite, and chlorite. X-ray diffraction analysis of the clay...

... We investigated the groundwater system of the Chesapeake Bay impact structure by analyzing the pore-water chemistry in cores taken from a 1766-m-deep drill hole 10 km north of Cape Charles, Virginia. Pore water was extracted using high-speed centrifuges from over 100 cores sampled from a 1300 m...

... in the central uplift at Cape Charles, Virginia. The drill cores from 744 to 823 m depth consist of suevitic crystalline-clast breccia and brecciated cataclastic gneiss in which the TiO 2 phases anatase and rutile are common accessory minerals. Electron-microprobe imaging and laser Raman spectroscopy of TiO 2...

Toward the center of the structure, near the town of Cape Charles, Virginia, is a suggestion of a central peak, where uplifted basement rock may be as shallow as 1 km. This inner basin–outer rim structure has been observed at other impact...
