One possible effect due to impact cratering is the transformation of part oT the kinetic energy of the projectile to energy in the electromagnetic field. Shock-induced polarization of piezoand dielectric material could be the mechanism by which this is accomplished. Although the estimates show that the fraction of kinetic energy transformed by this mechanism is rather small, the effect could be sufficient to form some magnetic features of planets that have even a slight planetary magnetic field… CONTINUE READING
