TY  - JOUR
AB - In Miljkovi et al. (2013) we resolved the apparent contradiction that while 15% of the Near Earth Asteroid (impactor) population are binaries, only 2–4% of craters formed on Earth and Mars (target planet) are doublet craters. Using 3D hydrocode simulations to explore the physics of binary impacts, we showed that only 2% of binary asteroid impacts produced well-separated doublets, while the rest covered morphologies ranging from overlapping to elliptical or even circular. We then generated a complete classification dataset to aid in the identification of the (sometimes subtle) morphological characteristics consistent with a binary asteroid impact. We thank Schmieder et al. (2013) for providing additional detailed geochronological constraints which indicate that our lower bound of 2% doublet craters on Earth may in fact be ≤1.5%.
