Abstract Impact events have the potential to generate a number of long-term sources of heat that can lead to the initiation of hydrothermal systems when the impact occurs on a water- or ice-rich target. Such hydrothermal systems have been postulated as promising locations to search for evidence of past biological processes on Mars due to the prevalence of impact cratering as a surface process in Mars’s early history. In this study, we have used molecular parameters of the thermal maturity of organic matter combined with palynology and carbon isotope stratigraphy to study the post impact thermal history of crater fill sediments from the Boltysh crater, Ukraine.
