Rock samples of Prince Albert Mountains, Antarctica, 2011-12 seasonEntry ID: KPDC_NVLR_2011_JW_01
Abstract: This entry is for the rock samples of Prince Albert Mountains, Antarctica collected in 2011-12 austral summer season. The collection includes volcanic rocks (basalt, dolerite, hyaloclasite, and tuff) from Ferrar Supergroup and sedimentary rocks (sandstone, siltstone) from Ferrar Supergroup and Beacon Supergroup. A few plant fossil fragments and fragmented of coals, most likely from the Beacon Supergroup, are also listed in this entry.
Purpose: The samples were collected in order to understand the lithologic characters of basement rocks underneath the David Glacier. Information on the stratigraphy of the volcanics and sedimentary succession will be helpful for understanding geological processes and paleoenvironments of the Victoria Land.
