Summary
Abstract: The Ross Orogeny refers to the collision event when East and West Antarctica met, resulting in subduction with associated deformation, crustal thickening, metamorphism and igneous activity. In the Dry Valleys area metamorphic basement rocks are intruded by large plutons of granite. However, further south magmatic rocks are highly varied. The occurrence of nepheline syenites and associated ... View entire text
