Abstract

Abstract– We present here a report following the Second Arab Impact Cratering and Astrogeology Conference that took place in Casablanca in November 2011. It includes a summary of the main results presented at this meeting and recent developments in impact science in the Arab world. Known and potential impact structures in this region of the world are presented on a map. The conference ended with a synopsis and a list of recommendations that are reported here. We conclude with some remarkable aspects of the postconference field trip.
