Gravity and seismic data in the Windless Bight area, Ross Island and the Dailey Islands to determine possible lithospheric deformation due to the loading by young Ross Island volcanics
Entry ID: K101_1982_1986_NZ_1

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: Where loading of the lithosphere by young volcanic piles has occurred, the lithosphere is found to be displaced downward beneath the load and at distances of about 200-300 km from the centre of the load there are compensating upwards of lithosphere observed. From the amplitude and wavelength of both the solid surface and the free air gravity anomalies associated with loading, values of flexural ... View entire text
