Basement Sill, Antarctica: Constraints from its PGE Abundance Patterns and Isotopic Compositions on Magma Source Characteristics and Crystallization Processes
Entry ID: mukasa_0603729

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: The Basement Sill in the Dry Valleys of southern McMurdo Sound and the Dufek layered mafic intrusion in the Pensacola Mts. are part of the Ferrar large igneous province (FLIP), emplaced in a Paleozoic mobile belt developed adjacent to the East Antarctic Craton during the Mid Jurassic. Zircon, baddeleyite and rutile U-Pb dating we performed prior to this award shows that emplacement occurred in a ... View entire text
