Whitepaper #050 submitted to the Planetary Science and Astrobiology Decadal Survey 2023-2032. Topics: planetary defense
A considerable amount of effort has been done to quantify the initial effects of an asteroid impact on Earth. However, delayed downstream and downwind effects will propagate, and disturb areas not immediately affected by the initial impact. This white paper addresses the need for models to anticipate and predict delayed effects on regional areas.
