Specifically what would actually happen when a large object (>1km) impacts the planet. Things like tsunamis, climate change, burning the air, etc.

I'm doing a speech on existential threats for my public speaking class, and I am having a hard time finding information. I don't want anyone to do my homework for me, just looking for discussion and nudges in the right direction.


Sorry if this is the wrong forum.

I know it's Wiki but seems someone has done there homework:
en.wikipedia.org...

There is also this:
Earth Impact Effects Program
impact.ese.ic.ac.uk...

Should hopefully get you started

Thank you for those, the 2nd one was pretty interesting.


I read the wiki as well, but the prof wont allow it as a source. :-(

Apophis asteroid is one they are keeping an eye on if you need a good example of preventative measures.

The bottom of the wiki page has lots of references listed. Surely you can search some the peer-reviewed journal articles down and see if they have the info you are looking for.

Good luck with the paper.
