Based on evaluation of past results and new research, we have partitioned the distribution of the Alamo Breccia in southeastern Nevada and western Utah into six genetic Realms that provide a working model for the marine Late Devonian Alamo Impact Event. Each Realm exhibits discrete impact processes and stratigraphic products that are enumerated here. The first five form roughly concentric semicircular bands across the Devonian shallow-water carbonate platform. These are: (1) Rim Realm, where a newly defined impact stratigraphy includes both autogenic and allogenic breccias associated with the crater rim; (2) Ring Realm, where breccias are now interpreted to have...
