Abstract

Currently, about 190 geological structures are identified to be of impact origin. About 120 of these can be traced in the terrestrial surface topography. The rest is hidden from direct view by sedimentation, erosion or submersion. In the past three years we have exploited the TanDEM-X elevation model for impact crater research. The TanDEM-X DEM is the first high-resolution global DEM which permits accessing all confirmed impact structures. Of particular interest was how the TanDEM-X DEM compares with other global elevation models. Our work illustrates the potential of the TanDEM-X DEM for remote sensing studies of impact craters and even permit to estimate how the TanDEM-X elevation data may be used to find new impact crater candidates by autonomous search methods.
