[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: Volcanogenic and sedimentary deposits that comprise Mt Watters were mapped and sampled at Allan Hills to determine the nature of the feature and the eruptive event which produced it. Collected data include samples collected for thin-sectioning and microprobe analysis, geological descriptions and measurements of fracture and inter-unit orientations. A geological map of Mt Watters was produced in the field.
