Water resurge into newly excavated impact craters causes both erosion and conspicuous graded deposits in those cases where the water is deep enough to overrun the elevated crater rim. We compare published information on resurge deposits from mainly the Lockne, Tvären, and Chesapeake Bay structures with new results from low-velocity impact experiments and numerical simulations. Notwithstanding the limitations of each of the analytical methods (observation, experiment, and simulation), we can visualize the resurge process for various initial impact-target configurations, for which one single method would have been insufficient. The focus is on the ways in which variations in impact angle...
