Abstract: A detailed integrated marine geophysical survey of the sourthern Adare Basin region and a series of detailed seismic transects across the Northern Basin, underlying the north-western Ross Sea continental shelf was conducted in a collaborative research investigation. The research program contributes to the understanding of plate tectonics, particularly the detailed development of the Ross Sector of ... View entire text
