List of Impact Craters in North America - Unconfirmed Impact Craters

Unconfirmed Impact Craters

The following craters are officially considered "unconfirmed" because they are not listed in the Earth Impact Database. Due to stringent requirements regarding evidence and peer-reviewed publication, newly-discovered craters or those with difficulty collecting evidence generally are known for some time before becoming listed. However, entries on the unconfirmed list could still have an impact origin disproven.

Famous quotes containing the words craters and/or impact:

    Listen.
    We must all stop dying in the little ways,
    in the craters of hate,
    in the potholes of indifference....
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)

    As in political revolutions, so in paradigm choice—there is no standard higher than the assent of the relevant community. To discover how scientific revolutions are effected, we shall therefore have to examine not only the impact of nature and of logic, but also the techniques of persuasive argumentation effective within the quite special groups that constitute the community of scientists.
    Thomas S. Kuhn (b. 1922)
