An important feature of impacts into Solar System bodies is the fate of crater ejecta, the near-surface material launched during the highly dynamic crater formation process. Laboratory measurements of impact crater ejecta from 18 studies are summarized. The data are examined and used to assess our understanding of how the ejecta velocity and mass distributions depend on the conditions of an impact event. The effects of impact speed on the ejecta are reasonably well understood, but the… CONTINUE READING
