Rochechoaurt at the 6th “Large Meteorite Impact Conference” – September 30th – October 3rd 2019, Brasilia, Brazil

Organized every 4-6 years, this conference is sort of “Olympics” of the “champions” of the studies of meteorite impact craters worldwide. It was at the 4th edition of theis conference that P. Lambert announced the project of making the Rochechouart Impact Geoheritage a Natural Laboratory made available to the community worldwide for understanding impact cratering in the Solar System and beyond. The CIRIR created in 2016, is the practical instrument toward that aim. The 2017-2018 drillings in the National Reserve are one of the practical results as are the presentations by CIRIR members at this conference, as listed below :
