The Kilmichael Structure, Mississippi; no evidence for an impact origin from a preliminary petrographic study

, : The Kilmichael Structure, Mississippi; no evidence for an impact origin from a preliminary petrographic study. Abstracts of Papers Submitted to the Lunar and Planetary Science Conference 31(Pages (abstr

A petrographic study of 20 mostly sandy samples from a drill core near the center of the Kilmichael structure failed to detect evidence for shock metamorphic effects.
