The Wolf Creek Crater is the second largest crater of meteoritic origin to be discovered on the earth's surface. An outline of the history of the discovery and the situation of the crater is given in this report. A general description of the crater is presented including dimensions, appearance, types of sediments involved and structure of the crater. An interpretation of these factors is given. A general discussion is included with emphasis on meteoritic craters as distinct from craters resulting from other causes.
