Figure 8: Structural relationships in the Schrödinger basin iSALE hydrocode simulation.

From: Peak-ring structure and kinematics from a multi-disciplinary study of the Schrödinger impact basin

Figure 8

(a) Time-step at 2.5 min that shows the transient crater depth. It is colour coded to show that relatively shallow units are carried downward to the base of the transient crater. The transient crater radius was 80 km in a target with a crustal thickness of 40 km appropriate for the western side of the basin. (b) Time-step at 41.7 min showing the final emplacement and configuration of the peak ring. Results are shaded in 10 km-thick increments and a colour transition between green and brown is used to indicate target units that were stratigraphically above and below the transient crater depth of 62.5 km.
