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. The nature and extent of regional and contact metamorphism during the Ross Orogeny was investigated in the Skelton-Cocks Glacier and Hooper Crags areas. Units of 'high' grade and 'low' grade metamorphism in the ... View entire text
