Country Finland
CoordinatesLat. N 62°39' Long.E 28°10'
Diameter km 3.5
Age Ma or date 85.0 ±1.2
Synonyms Suvasvesi N, Kukkarinselkä
Remarks This was though to be a twin with Suvasvesi South. Thus it was though its age may be the same. However, recent, yet to be published, study finds out that these two craters are not related (Schmieder et.al. 2014b). There is over 600 Ma between impacts. Different ages was speculated already earlier by others, since there is differences between preservation and geophysics between them. New age from drill core of Suvasvesi North makes it the second youngest impact structure found in Finland so far.
