Chicxulub crater post-impact hydrothermal activity - evidence from Paleocene carbonates in the Santa Elena borehole
Active hydrothermal systems develop in impact structures formed in marine settings, associated with convective processes involving hydrothermal fluids and seawater. Here we investigate hydrothermal
Seismic attribute analysis of Chicxulub impact crater
Chicxulub crater formed ~ 66 Ma ago by an asteroid impact on the Yucatan platform in the southern Gulf of Mexico. The crater has a ~ 200 km rim diameter and has been covered by carbonate sediments up
Rock magnetic and AMS fabrics characterization of suevitic breccias from the Cretaceous-Paleogene Chicxulub impact crater
Results of a paleomagnetic and magnetic fabrics study of the basal suevitic breccias in the Chicxulub impact crater, Yucatan platform, Gulf of Mexico are presented. The breccias were cored in the

Seismic imaging and attribute analysis of Chicxulub Crater central sector, Yucatán Platform, Gulf of Mexico
Chicxulub Crater, formed ~66Ma ago by an asteroid impact on the southern Gulf of Mexico, is the best preserved of the three large multi-ring basins in the terrestrial record. The crater structure is
Cretaceous–Paleogene boundary exposed: Campeche Escarpment, Gulf of Mexico
GEOPHYSICAL CHARACTERIZATION OF THE CHICXULUB IMPACT CRATER
Geophysical data indicate that the 65.5 million years ago Chicxulub impact structure is a multi‐ring basin, with three sets of semicontinuous, arcuate ring faults and a topographic peak ring (PR).
Physical properties of the Yaxcopoil‐1 deep drill core, Chicxulub impact structure, Mexico
Abstract– The Chicxulub structure in Mexico, one of the largest impact structures on Earth, was formed 65 Ma by a hypervelocity impact that led to the large mass extinction at the K‐Pg boundary. The

Surficial geology of the Chicxulub impact crater, Yucatan, Mexico
TLDR
The Cenote Ring provides the most accurate position of the Chicxulub crater's center, and the associated faults, fractures, and stratigraphy indicate that the crater may be ∼240 km in diameter.
