This first image is of the gulf taken from google earth
This next image is what i think happend. the impact came in from the direction of the black arrow
( forgive my paint skills ) the
show the direction of the out ward blast. the yellow arrow
is the resulting inward water flow.
This last pic shows how the earth and water flowed back in. The earth is in red
showing the flow back in from the mexico side, and
the abrupt sea shelf where the blast went up ward. the black
shows where the water flow back in to the crater thus not resulting
in the same out ward blast pattern shown in red. so what you see is two lips almost opposite of each other right at the mouth. this happens when
rushing water has a back flow at a choke point. so it just a flat debris field.
here is a similar impact with a small one after just like the gulf and the smaller Chicxulub crater
Any input is welcome.
thank you for your time.
