SYDNEY A strike from a big asteroid more than 300 million years ago left a huge impact zone buried in Australia and changed the face of the earth, researchers said on Friday.



The dust and greenhouse gases released from the crater, the seismic shock and the initial fireball would have incinerated large parts of the earth, said Andrew Glikson, a visiting fellow at the Australian National University.



The asteroid was bigger than 10 km 6 miles in dia marant boots meter, while the impact zone itself was larger than 200 km 120 miles the third largest impact zone in the world.



The greenhouse gases would stay in the atmosphere for tens of thousands of years, Glikson told Reuters.



The discovery was marant boots made after another researcher alerted Glikson to some unusual mineral deposits in the East Warburton Basin in South Australia.



Glikson and colleagues analysed quartz grains drawn from deep beneath the earths surface in research starting in 2010 and the crater itself was recently identified, he added.



The impact happened before the dinosaurs, he said.



The announcement of the discovery came just before a newly discovered asteroid about half the size of a football marant boots field was set to pass some 27,520 km 17,200 miles from Earth. marant boots
