Location of Meteorite or Fossil Craters in Québec

The impact of bolides is often suggested to explain certain events leading up to the sudden disappearance of a large proportion of living species in Earth’s history. The meteorite crater in Charlevoix dates back to the Upper Devonian, but it is unlikely that the mass extinction at the end of the Devonian is linked to the impact of this meteorite.
