    'Sodom' blasted by meteor?

    so, we have this as an explanation as to what might have happened...I like this sentence to explain the issue

    "The study was born of a historical riddle: “That the most productive agricultural land in the region, which had supported flourishing civilizations continuously for at least 3,000 years, should suddenly relinquish, then resist, human habitation for such a long period of time has begged investigation,” states the excavation’s website."

    and this little calculation...'an airburst yield of 10 megatons"

    Does anyone here have access to the original paper? I am particularly interested in their error bars for the date of this event. The press keeps saying "3,700 years before present" but I am sure there is a range of dates and I am interested in that range. Thank you in advance.

    See Geology "is this geology?" in Natural Sciences section. There is a citation at the bottom.
