The Kaali meteorite impact crater field, which consists of a 110 m diameter main crater and eight satellite craters on the island of Saaremaa, Estonia is a unique object as its meteoritic origin is well proven, it lies in a densely populated area and fell in the relatively recent past. The precise age of the impact that generated the craters is still disputed. We investigated the basal sediment section from the main crater lake, Kaali järv, consisting of crushed and in-washed dolomite… Expand
