Crustal Cross-Sections along the Mawson Escarpment and Mount Stinear, Southern Prince Charles MountainsEntry ID: ASAC_1215_Mawson_Stinear
Abstract: Crustal Cross-Sections along the Mawson Escarpment and Mount Stinear, Southern Prince Charles Mountains (East Antarctica): Correlating the Ruker Complex across the Lambert Glacier.
From the attached paper:
Previous workers in the southern Prince Charles Mountains have described geologic similarities between Mount Stinear and the southern Mawson Escarpment. At each location, ... quartzite, metconglomerate and garnet-staurolite-kyanite metapelite are intercalated with various bodies of felsic orthogneiss of probable Archaean age. In this contribution, we present detailed geologic cross-sections of the Mawson Escarpment and Mount Stinear arising from fieldwork completed during the 2002-03 Prince Charles Mountains Expedition of Germany and Australia (PCMEGA). A correlation of the Ruker Complex across the Lambert Glacier appears tenable using the mapping results together with the available geochronological and aeromagnetic data from both areas.
