The new Earth Impact Database tracks terrestrial impact data. The resource is managed by the Planetary and Space Science Centre in the department of geology at the University of Nouveau-Brunswick. Most terrestrial impact craters that have ever formed have been obliterated by other terrestrial geological processes. To-date, over 160 impact craters have been identified on Earth. Almost all known craters have been recognized since 1950 and several new structures are found each year. The Crater Inventory can be sorted by the Name of the crater, it's Diameter and it's Location.
