Igneous Petrography of Byers Peninsula, Livingston Island, Antarctica
Entry ID: 01-95_01

Abstract: During this campaign, 50 volcanic and subvolcanic rock samples were collected,
which were described petrographically. In general they are porphyritic rocks
composed of phenocrysts of plagioclase, olivine, and clinopyroxene in an
intergranular-intersectional fundamental mass, some with pilotaxitic and/or
amydaloidal textures.
