Summary
Abstract: The basement rocks of eastern Northern Victoria Land (NVL) consist of a series of exotic terrances that were accreted to the Gondwanan margin while Andean style convergence was occurring. Conversely, Southern Victoria Land (SVL) shows little evidence of terrane accretion while undergoing convergence. The aim of this study was to test the possible extension of the tectonostratigraphic terranes of ... View entire text
