The consequences of the fall of a giant asteroid into the ocean showed in the video

Последствия падения гигантского астероида в океан показали на видеоWave generated in a collision less dangerous than the waves that arise in the case of underwater earthquakes.

The experts at Los Alamos national laboratory in the US showed what happens in case of a fall of an asteroid in the ocean. At the meeting of the American geophysical Union scientists said that the greatest danger is not the wave that will lift an asteroid collision and its impact on the climate of the planet.

Geophysicist Ghisler Galen (Galen Gisler), together with colleagues conducted a series of simulations on a supercomputer, which dealt with various scenarios of asteroid into the ocean. So, they found that waves generated in a collision less dangerous than the waves that arise in the case of underwater earthquakes.

However, the high temperature of the asteroid can lead to evaporation of large amounts of water. This will provoke the precipitation of some part of the moisture, but most of it can reach the stratosphere and play the role of a powerful greenhouse gas that affects the Earth’s climate.
