Microstructural evidence of impact-induced crystalplastic deformation and postshock annealing of quartz


During impact, rocks at the surface and accessible depths encounter extreme conditions. The hydrostatic component of the shock wave-associatedstress, the so-called shock pressure, canreach several tens of GPa in the central part of the structure. The shock crust and its comprehensive experimental calibration. Two distinct types of quartz microstructure in charnockitic target rocks and quartz veins of the Charlevoix impact structure are compared and contrasted in order to distinguish shock-induced microstructures that indicate a high hydrostatic stress component of the shock wave-associated stress from those that indicate a high deviatoric component, as well as associated microstructures that were generated during post-shock relaxation...
