Formation of a Complex Crater

Complex craters have interior terraces and flat floors surrounding central peaks. In large craters the excavation cavity is enlarged by inward slumping of the crater walls. This produces terraces on the interior walls. The energy of impact is so great that a certain fraction of the impacted material is melted to produce impact melt. This visualization show the stages of a complex crater.
