[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: Near complete coverage of the East Antarctic shield by ice hampers geological
study of crustal architecture important for understanding global tectonic and
climate history. Limited exposures in the central Transantarctic Mountains
(CTAM), however, show that Archean and Proterozoic rocks of the shield as well
as Neoproterozoic-lower Paleozoic sedimentary successions were ... View entire text
