Here are links to other sources of information about impact craters, the cratering process, or planetary science. We invite you to visit these sites if you need supplemental information. Enjoy!

Solar Views
Pictures of planets, moons, and other objects, along with other information about our solar system

Earth Impact Database
A compilation of information about impact craters by researchers at the Geological Survey of Canada since 1985

Terrestrial Impact Craters and their Environmental Effects
A fun, comprehensive website about the impact cratering process by the University of Arizona's Department of Planetary Science, Lunar and Planetary Lab.

Impact Field Studies Group
A group dedicated to discussing field-based impact geology, visiting confirmed and/or suspected impact sites, and offering field work opportunities to students in planetary science.

Movies of Meteor Crater
A site maintained by Marvin Simkin at Arizona State University with fly-by movies and other animations of Meteor Crater in northern Arizona.

Video Simulations of Impact Cratering Processes
Videos from the Lunar and Planetary Insitute showing how simple craters, complex craters, and large impact basins are formed. Views are in cross-sectional form.
