Greenland 12,000 Years ago, there was a massive iron meteorite that left a larger crater over Paris, recently discovered by ice using a modern radar, announced by Central European scientists.
It is the first such crater ever to be found in Greenland and along with all the continental ice caps of the Earth. According to the size of this crater, it is the 25th of all known on our planet, writes in Science Advances.
The 31 kilometer crater is under the ice of Hiawatha. Meteorit had a significant impact on the region, perhaps even in the world, scientists said.
But his story is just beginning to say.
"The atmosphere had to be thrown out of the particles that could affect the climate, it was possible that many ice melts and a lot of fresh water hit the Channel and Greenland suddenly, which affected the ocean currents throughout the region," said one author John Paden (John Peiden) , professor of electrical engineering and computer science at the University of Kansas.
"Evidence suggests collisions are likely to have occurred after Greenland's continental ice, but a team of researchers is still exploring the exact time," he said.
The discovery was made in 2015, but the international team of scientists has since verified the findings.
The initial discovery was based on data from Arctic Regional Climate NASA (PARCA) and Arctic Ice Tracking Mission Operation IceBridge.
Later, more data was collected using more advanced radar technologies.
"It was not yet possible to give the crater a direct term, but its condition is very suggestive for it originated after the ice began to cover Greenland, so it is under 3 million years, and possibly (created) only 12,000 years near the end of the last time icy, "said co-author Kurt Kjaer (Kurt Kera) of the Danish Museum of Natural History, Center for Geogenetics.
Scientists are going to try the material from the bottom of the glacier to help them learn more about the time of the collision and its impact on Earth's life at that time.
