Definition of Impact event

Impact event

An impact event is the collision of a large meteorite with the Earth (or another planet). Hundreds of minor impact events have been reported during history of the Earth. They usually cause little damage, but sometimes they cause human and animal losses, injuries and property damage. If an impact occurs in an ocean, sea or lake rather large, it will generate most of the time a tsunami too.
