Study on fine structure of rocks formed by impact

Study period:1990 - 1997
Organization (1):
Investigating Researcher (4):
Research overview:
To predict the mechanism of impact-denatured structure formation, this study breaks granite, typical rock of earth's crust, by high-speed impact, investigates the distribution of fragments, and compares the internal structure with the structure of an impact-denatured rock near a meteorite crater on the ground.
