U-Pb zircon data for Ferrar LIPEntry ID: U-Pb_zircon_geochronology_Ferrar
Abstract: Data set includes U-Pb zircon geochronological data for Ferrar Supergroup (Ferrar Dolerite, Kirkpatrick Basalt) rocks from the Transantarctic Mountains which were collected over several Antarctic field seasons (between 1966 and 2011) by David H. Elliot (Ohio State University)and Thomas H. Fleming (Southern Connecticut State University). The geochronological data were acquired by Seth Burgess and Samuel Bowring of MIT. These data are being linked with the geochemical data concurrently being acquired by Fleming and Elliot.
Purpose: The purpose of this study is to evaluate the age and duration of this major Large Igneous Province and then test whether it is exactly coincident with the Pliensbachiam-Toarcian extinction event,
