    By now, this term is used both in a narrow and in a broader sense – either as a designation of the small area (some 8 km across), with the Stoykovich mountain at its center, over which the Tunguska space body exploded, or as the name of the whole region of the Tunguska catastrophe, encircling the whole zone of the leveled forest. In this book, this name is used mainly in the broader sense.Google Scholar
