Mt. Burdett
British Columbia, Canada

The seismic shock waves from the Mt. Burdett impact in British Columbia, Canada.
     The image above shows the major seismic shock wave circles from the Mt. Burdett impact. The image is linked to a much larger image for a closer examination. These circles are detailed below.






Locater for the Mt. Burdett Impact, in British Columbia, Canada
This impact formed Mt Burdett, in British Columbia, Canada.

This impact is unique in that the seismic shock waves describe a number if political boundaries in the eastern part of the United States.
These are shown below.




Local area of Mt. Burdett near Quesnel and Barkerville, British Columbia, Canada
Mt Burdett is about 7 miles south of Barkerville, and 40 miles East of Quesnel, British Columbia. The center of impact is three miles West of the mountain peak.






The Mt. Burdett Impact site, in British Columbia, Canada, looking East
This image is looking to the East. This image shows an initial circle at about 6 miles diameter.  It appears that the impactor hit about 3 miles to the East of Mt Burdett and is a most likely cause of the mountain being raised as it is. It also appears to have raised a secondary circle of mountains and a circular valley just beyond them at about 17 miles distance.

The direction of impact looks to be from the west. Shown are the 6 mile and 17 mile seismic shock wave circles. This impact seems to be a major factor in the formation of Spectacle Lakes and Caribou Lake.

The seismic wave from the Mt. Burdett Meteor Impact aligns the Ohio River, as it forms the boundary between Indiana and Kentucky.
At 1985 miles radius to the Southeast, the seismic wave aligns with the Ohio River, as it forms the boundary between Indiana and Kentucky.
through Baja California, the Mt Burdett 1985 mile radius wave delineates this river
To the South through Baja California, the 1985 mile radius wave delineates this river. This is the same river as shown for the 435 mile radius seismic wave from the Isla Socorro impact off the coast of Mexico. However, this wave formed the valley for the north branch of the river, and the Isla Socorro wave formed the valley for the south branch.

     This stepping of the river valleys as shown here, seems to be fairly common. To see this across the United States from another direction, see the Adirondack Impact, in New York State.  Another example of this can be seen with the Mueda Impact as it passed through South Africa.
