Crater animation

Click the image for a crater formation animation. This is from a nice website on the discovery of the Chicxulub crater - subsequent to the theory that an asteroid had impacted at the K-T boundary. The page on the discovery of the impact site is interesting but also check out the pages on the regional and global impacts.

On a different page you can see an animation of the wildfires caused as the ejected debris rained back down to earth.
