Advisory        If you arrived here by any means other than from the Index of Impacts,
it is suggested that you start at the Introduction to gain an understanding of what follows.

The Eurasian Impact
The 1780 km radius seismic circle from the Eurasia Meteor Impact.
A notable seismic circle from this impact is 1,780 kilometers, or 1,100 miles in radius from the center of impact. That center is located at  52°28'N 30°33'E. This impact provided much of the basic shape of Europe. The southern part of this image traces a line of volcanoes through Italy, Greece, Turkey and Armenia. The seismic circles left by this impact define not just the geography, but where numerous highly engineered, man made projects have been placed. Some of these will be shown below.

The Center of Impact of the Eurasia Meteor Impact.
     The Center of Impact of this site is unremarkable, lying in a wooded area of Southeastern Belarus, with farmlands all around. As explained in the Barringer Impact Page, this likely is not where the meteor is, but is the place where the meteor first hit, and where all the concentric seismic circles eminate from.

The 75 km radius seismic circle defines part of the border between Russia and Belarus.
     At 75 kilometers radius, there is a seismic circle which roughly defines part of the border between Russia and Belarus.

The 665 km radius seismic circle from the Eurasia Meteor Impact.
      At 665 Kilometers radius. The numbered pointers refer to the detail images at right.                                  

The 665 km radius seismic circle from the Eurasia Meteor Impact To the North northeast at Uglovka, Russia.
     To the North northeast at 665 kilometers there is a bridge over the river (1) and a mining operation (2) at Uglovka, Russia.

     THe line runs through the center of Udomlya, Russia, and marker (3) is a large industrial complex 4.5 kilometers off the line or 0.67% of the radius line.

     Marker (4)  at Bogorodskoye, Russia. It appears that they have built a man made lake 100 meters above the level of the lake to the east. It appears the the water is being pumped up to this reservoir to service the surrounding population and industry. The elevations of this image are exaggerated.

     At marker (5) another reservoir has been built.

     To the south, the Dnieper River Flows out of the Ukraine to the Black Sea. Marker (6) is a dam on the River Dnieper, and Marker (7) is the small seaport of Odesa.

      In the mountainous region of Southeastern Poland is the resort area of Lake Solina. The lake is formed by a dam at Gmina Solina, and there is another dam downstream from that, both marked by the yellow arrows.

     Marker (9) is for the coast line at Riga, Latvia. This is where the River Daugava flows into the Gulf if Riga, which then exits to the Baltic Sea.

     To the East southeast, the seismic wave created the valley which the Volga River follows for 380 kilometers between the cities of Saratov and Volgograd.

     At Saratov, Russia the Saratov Bridge is marked. This was the longest bridge in Russia when it was completed in 1965. In 2009 a new bridge was completed north of there with a total length 12,760 meters (41,860 ft). Note the proximity of these bridges and the airport to the circle line. It is shown many times through out these pages that the engineers and designers if these huge projects have found sites that fall on the seismic circle line to be the best suited for their purposes. They decided on these sites without prior knowledge of the seismic circle.

     North of Volgograd is the Volga Hydroelectric Station which harnesses the waters of the Volga River before it flows into the Caspian Sea.

     At the western edge of the Black Sea the circle passes through Bulgaria.

     This is the Danube River that forms part of the boundaries between Romania, Serbia and Bulgaria. Two Hydroelectric power dams are arrowed, Iron Gate I, and Iron Gate II. Iron Gate I is shown to the right.

 The Iron Gate I Hydroelectric Power Dam on the Danube River. The yellow line shown here is the border between Romania and Serbia. This dam is about 25 km northeast of the shock wave circle (2.3% of the radius) and lies in a deep gorge which separates the southern Carpathian Mountains from the northwestern foothills of the Balkan Mountains.

     The Iron Gate II Hydroelectric Power Dam on the Danube River lies directly on the seismic circle.

     To the West southwest, through Bratislava, Slovakia.

     To the West northwest, the circle provided the valley for the Oder River, which forms the border between Germany and Poland. A portion of the city of Szczcin, Poland is shown to the right.

     At the city of Szczcin, Poland, there is a major seaport with a considerable railroad system that was built on this seismic circle.

     The Eurasian seismic circle at 1425 kilometers radius (885 miles).                              

     To the west through northwern Europe and the center of Denmark.

     To the Southwest.

The southern part of the 1780 kilometer seismic circle from the Eurasia Meteor Impact.
     The most striking features of this impact, is the southern section of this seismic shock wave circle. At 1,780 kilometers radius, this is the most likely cause of the volcanoes that are lined up on it. This is seen in other places, suhc as the Baffin Island Impact that caused the Hawaiian Island vulcanic chain, and the impacts that formed the Great Rift Valley in Africa, such as the Kilimanjaro Impact.

     To the northeast, the river valleys line up to follow this circle through most of the northeastern quadrant. This image is linked to a much larger image for a more detailed inspection.

The 2160 kilometer seismic circle from the Eurasia Meteor Impact.
     2160 Kilometers (1340 miles)                 

     At 2160 kilometers to the Southwest the circle cut through the center of Sardinia, and forms the Southwestern coast of Sicily. Larger views to the right.

     Past the Isle of Sicily, the Southwestern coastline and offshore plateau were formed.

     At 2160 kilometers, a fine line is cut through the Island of Sardinia. A larger image is attached to show detail, and a reservoir lies on the line, detailed to the right.

     At 2160 kilometers on Sardinia a reservoir falls just at the line.

     At 2160 kilometers to the West, across the United Kingdom.

     To the Southeast at 2160 kilometers across Iraq and Iran. Linked to a larger image for detail.

      At 11230 kilometers radius (6980 miles) across the central Atlantic Ocean and into Sao Paulo, Brazil.              

     On the other side of the world, trough Indonesia, the line is evident.
