Structural, Metamorphic and Uplift History of the Prince Charles Mountains
Entry ID: ASAC_57

Abstract: From the abstracts of two of the referenced papers:

The low-temperature (ie less than ~120 degrees C) thermal history of the East Antarctic Shield has been assessed by apatite fission-track analysis of 42 Precambrian outcrop samples. Fission-track ages for these samples range from 466 plus or minus 20 Ma to 153 plus or minus 3 Ma and mean track lengths vary from 14.4 plus or minus ... View entire text
