Tour to the World’s 5th Largest Craters – Lonar Crater on 9 – 10 Dec 2017

Lonar Lake-

Lonar Lake is a saline soda lake located in Buldana district, Maharashtra, India, which was created by a meteor impact during the Pleistocene Epoch. This lake, which lies in a basalt impact structure, is both saline and alkaline in nature. The Lake has a mean diameter of 1.2 km (3,900 ft) and is about 137 mtr (449 ft) below the crater rim. The meteor crater rim is about 1.8 km (5,900 ft) in diameter. The circular depression bears a saline water lake in its central portion. The crater’s age is usually estimated to be 52,000 ± 6,000 years, although a study published in 2010 gives an age of 656,000 ± 81,000 years.
The lake was initially believed to be of volcanic origin, but now it is recognized as an impact crater created by the hypervelocity impact of either a comet or a meteorite. The presence of plagioclase that has been either converted into maskelynite or contains planar deformation features (PDFs) has confirmed the impact origin of this crater.
