Summary
Abstract: An evaluation of the use a portable drill for obtaining oriented paleomagnetic samples was undertaken on Ross Island. In all, 19 sites were sampled using the drill at Cape Crozier, Cape Bird, Cape Barne and Hut Point Peninsula. Oriented block samples were also collected for paleomagnetic determinations at Cape Barne, Cape Crozier and from the Fang Glacier, Mt Erebus. Detailed mapping and sampling ... View entire text
