Entry ID: Maxwell_Bay_Beaches_data

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: This data set includes elevations, OSL ages, and one suspect radiocarbon date from several raised beaches around Maxwell Bay in the South Shetland Islands. It also includes some basic textural parameters (grain size, sorting, and roundness) from modern beaches, talus slopes, and moraines in the area. We also compiled a map of recent moraines in the Gerlache Straight.
