Palaeomagnetic measurements of red bed Beacon Supergroup rocks (Terra Cotta Siltstone and Aztec siltstone) samples from South Victoria Land
Entry ID: K042_1980_1981_NZ_3

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: It had been previously found that sampled rocks from Beacon sandstones at Mt Bastion, Beacon Heights and Table Mountain were very weakly magnetised and their magnetic direction had been reset at the time of the massive dolerite intrusions during the Jurassic period. The reson for this is not clear and further investigation were conducted. Only the red beds which occur at two periods within the ... View entire text
