Datasets usually provide raw data for analysis. This raw data often comes in spreadsheet form, but can be any collection of data, on which analysis can be performed.
Dataset of hypervelocity impact experiments simulating oceanic impacts of asteroids, showing the fragmentation of projectile (chondrite, stainless-steel, olivine) within expanding water cavities filled with water bubbles. Table 1: Relationship between cavity depth and time after the first contact between projectile and water. Table 2: Depth trends of stress wave propagation rate, downward expansion rate of main cavity, and calculated peak shock pressure within water column. Table 3: Relationships between water depth normalized by projectile diameter (H/d) and (a) maximum crater diameter, (b) maximum crater depth, and c) crater volume in benthic solid target as a function of kinetic energy of projectile (V/E).
