In 1995, an expedition onboard the research vessel FSPolarsternexplored the impact site of the Eltanin asteroid in the Southern Ocean, the only known asteroid impact into a deep ocean basin. Analyses of the geological record of the impact region place the event in the late Pliocene (,2.15Myr) and constrain the size of the asteroid to be .1km. The explosive force inferred for this event places it at the threshold of impacts believed to have global consequences, and its studyshould therefore provide a baseline for the reconstruction andmodelling of similar events,which are common on geological timescales.
