1. Comparative studies of pebble and sediments from known sedimentary environments (Taylor Glacier, Table Mountain and Crary Ice Rise) with those found in a DVDP core [K042_1974_1975_NZ_1]
Examination of the cores from the Dry Valley Drilling Project consisted of, among other studies, grain size, pebble and magnetic investigations. Pebble and sediment sampling from known sedimentary ...


2. Determination of a polar wander path for Beacon Supergroup at Mount Bastion, West Beacon and Table Mountain [K042_1978_1979_NZ_1]
The Beacon Supergroup in the McMurdo Sound region is a flat lying continental sequence about 2000m thick and ranging in age from Early Devonian to Late Triassic (400 to 180 my BP). A polar wander ...


3. Determination of deposition, sediment transport direction and age of New Mountain Sandstone (Beacon Supergroup) at various localities in the Royal Society Range and Dry Valleys region [K042_1974_1975_NZ_4]
The New Mountain Sandstone, the lowest formation of the Beacon Supergroup was studied in detail at various localities in the Royal Society Range and Dry Valley's region to determine its environment ...


4. Determination of the origin of marine diatoms in the Sirius Group glacial deposits from Table Mountain and Mt Feather and the conditions for authigenic chabazite formation in these rocks [K045_1994_1995_NZ_2]
The age of the Sirius Group glacial deposits in the Transantarctic Mountains are a topic of debate. There are two conflicting models which try to explain the origin of diatoms found in tillite beds ...


5. Palaeomagnetic measurements on rocks from Mt Crean to determine the continental drift of gondwanaland [K045_1994_1995_NZ_1]
The Beacon sediments of East Antarctica were deposited over the Devonian to Triassic geological periods, from 400 to 200 million years ago. Palaeomagnetic measurements on these rocks provide information ...


6. 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 ...


7. Palaeomagnetic measurements of red bed Beacon Supergroup rocks (Terra Cotta Siltstone and Aztec siltstone) samples from South Victoria Land [K042_1980_1981_NZ_3]
It had been previously found that sampled rocks from Beacon sandstones at Mt Bastion, Beacon Heights and Table Mountain were very weakly magnetised and their magnetic direction had been reset at the ...


8. 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 ...


9. Geological and geomorphic data and Sirius Group core analysis (stratigraphy, petrographical analysis, ground temperature and isotope analysis) from Table Mountain to determine the depositional history [K047_1996_1997_NZ_1]
The depositional and post depositional history of the Sirius Group tillite in the Dry Valleys area was investigated to resolve the ongoing debate as to whether the East Antarctic ice sheet formed ...


10. Lateral profiling of facies and sediments, and examination of trace fossils and altered Pivot Member sediments to describe the depositional environment of the quartzose sandstones of the Beacon Supergroup [K040_1993_1994_NZ_1]
The origin of quartzose sandstones in the lower part (Devonian) of the Beacon Supergroup, southern Victoria Land, has generated considerable debate. This project examined in detail the lowermost Beacon ...
