The presence of impact melt flows at the
Ries crater in Germany is proposed in:

Osinski, G. R., in press, Impact melt rocks
from the Ries structure, Germany: an origin
as impact melt flows? Earth and Planetary
Science Letters. Corrected Proof ,Available
online 11 September 2004

The abstract can be found by going to:

http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/journal/0012821X

and clicking the "Article in Press" link.

In part the abstract concluded:

" Thus, it is proposed that the Ries impact
melt rocks were emplaced as ground-hugging
impact melt flows that emanated from different
regions of the evolving transient cavity during
the modification stage of crater formation…
This represents the first recognition of
impact melt flows near the rim of a terrestrial
impact structure and is consistent with
observations of such features on the Moon
and Venus."

Also, a person can look at: "IMPACT MELT
ROCKS FROM THE RIES IMPACT STRUCTURE,
GERMANY: PRELIMINARY RESULTS O F AN
ANALYTICAL SEM STUDY." at:
