Formation of central uplift structures in large, complex impact craters: The role of pseudotachylitic breccias in the development of the Vredefort Dome, South Africa


Field and laboratory studies of pseudotachylitic breccias in the Vredefort Dome will provide critical constraints on temporal relationships and physical processes related to the formation and collapse of central uplift structures in large, complex impact structures.
