Feature: The Crater Timemap

The Earth has impact craters scattered across its surface. Some are exposed and easily identifiable (like Barringer Meteorite Crater). Others have become eroded or hidden by vegetation, water, or metamorphism. Where on Earth are they?

Use the map below to explore all of the verified impact craters on Earth, and the timeline below to learn when each impact occurred. Data for this map is taken from the Earth Impact Database at the University of New Brunswick.
