Geocache Description:

Söderfjärdenin kraateri on noin 530 miljoonaa vuotta vanha meteoriittikraateri.
Söderfjärdens meteorite impact crater is 530 million years old.

Se sijaitsee n. 10 km Vaasan keskustasta etelään, puoliksi Vaasan kaupungissa ja puoliksi Mustasaaren kunnassa. Kraaterin leveys on noin 5-6 km ja syvyys enimmillään 370 metriä. Söderfjärden on tänä päivänä tasainen, kuusikulmainen maanviljelysalue. Suomesta tunnetaan tällä hetkellä 9 kraateria, joista Söderfjärden on ainoa, joka ei ole veden peittämä, ja se on myös yksi parhaiten säilyneitä kraatereita koko maailmassa. Söderfjärden on kurkien tärkein levähdyspaikka Suomessa. Kätköpaikalla sijaitsee lintutorni. Hyvän kuvan kraaterista saa katsomalla kartasta paikkaa, tai esimerkiksi Google Earthin sateliittikuvaa (linkki alempana).

It is situated about 10 km south of the center of Vaasa, and half of it is within the city of Vaasa and the other half in the municipality of Korsholm. Söderfjärden has a diameter of 5-6 kilometres and depth of 370 meters. The crater is filled with land, so only the outer rim is visible. In Finland there are to date 9 identified impact craters, of which Söderfjärden is the only one not covered by water. Söderfjärden is also one of the best preserved craters in the world. Söderfjärden is the most important resting place for cranes in Finland.
