Geowilliams

1984 UL2. Discovered 1984 Oct. 23 by C. S. Shoemaker and E. M. Shoemaker at Palomar.

Named in honor of George E. Williams, exploration geologist with Broken Hill Propriety Co., Ltd. at Adelaide, South Australia. Williams discovered the Lake Acraman impact structure of South Australia, the largest such feature found so far on the Australian continent. He also discovered rhythmically layered sedimentary deposits of Precambrian age that exhibit periods closely matching those of the modern solar cycle. (M 12810)
