The term is crater : a typically round or ellipticaldepression with a raised ring. (The term is also applied on Earthto the caldera of volcanoes.) Particularly large meteor …impacts cancreate what is called an impact basin, where there can beconcentric rings caused by the flow of liquefied rock. The other terms used for impact features are: . rays: lines of typically brighter ejected material around acrater . impact basin: multiple-ringed structure caused by large impacts . melt sheets: flows of rock liquefied by an impact
They are called " craters " and were produced by meteorimpacts (the vast majority more than 2 billion years ago).
