1. Using diamict and glacio-tectonised samples to determine previous glacial overriding in the Allan Hills nunatak [K042_1999_2000_NZ_1]
The character and form of previous glacial overriding in the Allan Hills nunatak was determined by describing and quantifying the glacio-tectonised bedrock from Sirius related glaciations. The Sirius ...


2. Geological examination, mapping and sampling of the Mawson Volcano breccias at Shapeless Mountain and Allan Hills [K042_1972_1973_NZ_2]
A detailed study and sampling programme of the Mawson volcano breccia was carried out at Shapeless Mountain and on neighbouring Mistake Peak. Paleomagnetic measurements were used to determine the ...


3. Geological mapping and examination of the Beacon SuperGroup in Victoria Land: Beacon Heights, Skelton Neve, Portal Mountain and Horseshoe Mountains, Allan Hills, Darwin Mountains and Victoria Valley area [K042_1970_1971_NZ_1]
The stratigraphy of the Beacon Super Group in the Beacon Heights was previously described. This study was continued this season, extending the stratigraphy northward to the Mackay Glacier and southward ...


4. Determination of the Sirius Group (Neogene deposits) mode of deposition at Allan Hills, Mt Feather and Table Mountain [K042_1997_2001_NZ_1]
An ancient glacial deposit termed the Sirius Group is a collection of Neogene deposits that crop out at high elevations throughout the Transantarctic Mountains (TAM). The paleoflow direction and how ...


5. Fluvial and paleobotanical studies at Allan Hills [K042_1990_1991_NZ_1]
Paleobotanical studies revealed evidence for the in situ formation of Gondwana coals, a previous unrecognised feature. The evidence included the presence of Vertebraria roots in shaly units both within ...


6. Investigation of petrified logs, palaeobotanical materical and tree growth rings from Allan Hills for intrepretation of the palaeoclimate of the area [K042_1997_1998_NZ_1]
Allan Hills is known for its record of climate preserved in petrified logs 260 million years old in the Wellar coal measure. A study of the logs is part of a wider study on ancient forests in Jurassic ...


7. Stratigraphic section description and processing of phytoliths and pollen (microfossils) samples from Wellar Coal Measures, the Feather Sandstone and Lashley Formation from Allan Hills [K042_2001_2002_NZ_1]
Stratigraphic sections from the Weller Coal Measures, the Feather Sandstone, and the Lashley Formation were described from the Allan Hills. 115 samples were taken from these rocks and processes for ...


8. The fluvial depositional processes that formed the Triassic strata throughout south Victoria Land [K042_1982_1983_NZ_5]
The exposed Triassic strata throughout south Victoria Land was investigated to establish a set of palaeohydraulic models that best represent the fluvial depositional processes that operated during ...


9. Triassic paleoecology in south Victoria Land: A vegetation model (plant fossils and palaeosols) in Triassic alluvial plains [K042_1982_1983_NZ_6]
Triassic plant fossils and palaeosols were sampled from four mountains (Mt Bastion, Portal Mountain, Shapeless Mountain and Allan Hills) with the aim of establishing a model of vegetation on the Triassic ...


10. 1:20,000 geological map of Allan Hills [K042_1990_1991_NZ_2]
A 1:20,000 scale geological map of Allan Hills and acompanying text was competed with the Weller Coal Measures being mapped to member level. Additional geographic control was established using a total ...


11. Analysis of shallow cores (stratigraphy, thickness and facies analysis, ageing) from Allan Hills and Table Mountain and assessment of contamination of diesel drilling fluid from DVDP-6 core, Lake Vida, 1972 [K047_2000_2001_NZ_1]
Shallow coring of permafrost glacial sediments was completed of the Sirius Group at Allan Hills to provide stratigraphic cores for thickness and facies analysis and at Table Mountain for comparative ...


12. Collection of endoliths from Battleship Promontory, Convoy Range [K047_2000_2001_NZ_2]
Endoliths were collected from the Battleship Promontory, Allan Hills area. Endoliths were search for with a geo pick and recorded notes from each collection site was recorded. 35mm pictures and digital ...


13. Geochemistry, paleomagnetism and intrusive history of the Ferrar Dolerites, Antarctica [K061_2004_2007_NZ_1]
A suite of geological samples were collected in the Transanatarctic Mountains for paleomagnetic and geochemical analysis. Combined with field observations, these samples will help determine magma ...


14. Investigation into the Mawson Formation volcanics of southern Allan Hills and comparisons with northern Allan Hills and Carapace Nunatak [K061_2003_2004_NZ_1]
The thick, laterally continuous block-rich volcaniclastic layer of the southern Allan Hills area was examined to determine their source and mode of emplacement. Extensive geological mapping of the ...


15. The physical features and dynamics of Ferrar dolerite dykes and sills within the Allan Hills, Victoria Land [K061_2006_2007_NZ_1]
At Allan Hills, dykes and sills are respectively sub-vertical and sub-horizontal magma bodies of fine textured basaltic rock, remnants of the formation of the Ferrar Large Igneous Province when large ...
