Sedimentary Processes in the Fjord-like Embayments of the Vestfold and Larsemann Hills
Entry ID: ASAC_705

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: Ellis Fjord is a small, fjord-like marine embayment in the vestfold Hills, eastern Antarctica. Modern sediment input is dominated by a biogenic diatom rain, although aeolian, fluvial, ice-rafted, slumped and tidal sediments also make a minor contribution. In areas where bioturbation is significant relict glaciogenic sediments are reworked into the fine-grained diatomaceous sediments to produce ... View entire text
