Field mapping data and petrological collections for petrography, geochronology and geochemistry, of rocks from Mt Morning, southern Victoria Land, Antarctica
Entry ID: K062_2004_2006_NZ_1

Abstract: Mt Morning is the most southerly of a series of central type volcanoes that make up the McMurdo Volcanic Group of south Victoria Land.
