Summary
Abstract: Geological reconnaissance was conducted in the Fry Glacier region to study in some detail the glacial geology of the Dry Valley areas and exposures of the Beacon Supergroup there. Geological mapping was completed in the 1,500 km2 area of the Fry Glacier region. The area extended from the Convoy Range in the west to the Kirkwood Range and lower Fry Glacier in the east and from Trinity Nunatak in the north to Benson Glacier and Mt Razorback in the south. Beacon Supergroup sediments were studied in detail at 14 sites.
