Figure 5

Cross-sections with simulation results for a 20 km-thick target crust (left panel) and 40 km-thick target crust (right panel) with maximum shock pressures indicated in a graduated scale from 12 to 80 GPa. Material that experienced maximum shock pressures less than 12 GPa are not highlighted by pressure and are instead highlighted by material, with crust shaded light grey and mantle shaded dark grey.
