TitleComet/asteroid impacts and human society : an interdisciplinary approach
Author(s)Peter T. Bobrowsky (ed.);Hans Rickman () (ed.)
Edition1st ed
PublicationBerlin, Springer, 2007.
Description1 online resource (xxvi, 546 p.) : ill. (some col.), maps (some col.)
Abstract NoteIn 1908, an atmospheric explosion in northern Siberia released energy equivalent to 15 Mton of TNT. Can a comparable or larger NEO affect us again? When the next NEO strikes Earth will it be large enough to destroy a city? Will the climate change significantly? Can archaeology and anthropology provide insights into the expected cultural responses with NEO interactions? Does society have a true grasp of the actual risks involved? Is the Great Depression a good model for the economic collapse that could follow a NEO catastrophe? This volume provides a necessary link between various disciplines and comet/asteroid impacts
