Another immense crater may have been found deep under Greenlands ice sheet

Scientists have discovered what's believed to be an immense crater far below Greenland's ice sheet, NASA announced Monday.

If the discovery is confirmed, the 23-mile-wide feature -- a shallow, bowl-shaped depression in the bedrock under more than a mile of ice -- would be only the second impact crater discovered under one of Earth's ice sheets. It would also be the 22nd-largest impact crater found on the planet.

The announcement comes just months after another team of scientists announced that they had found a 19-mile-wide impact crater not far away under Greenland's Hiawatha glacier.

"Once we knew from Hiawatha that there could be craters under ice sheets, it was quite easy to find the next one using an ensemble of publicly available NASA data," Joe MacGregor, a glaciologist at the space agency's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland, and ...
