I suspect that you will find interesting a hypothesis that most of the large lava flows on Earth and Mars result from disruption of the crust at the antipode (opposite side of a sphere) from a huge meteorite impact. You may see it discussed in http://charles_w.tripod.com/an tipode.html for Earth and http://charles_w.tripod.com/dw eber/mars_volcanos/mars_volcan os2.html for Mars.
The chance that there would be a lava flow at the antipode of each of the large known meteorite impact sites of the same age by sheer coincidence is extremely small.
Sincerely, Charles Weber
