Title: Geology of the Deep Freeze Range, north Victoria Land, Antarctica
Description:
Abstract:
This data set contains information about rock samples collected in the 1999-2000 field season from the Deep Freeze Range region of north Victoria Land. The rock collection includes samples of the Upper Triassic Section Peak Formation, the overlying Lower Jurassic Exposure Hill Formation, and the capping Lower Jurassic Kirkpatrick Basalt. The Section Peak Formation is dominantly a quartzose sandstone unit which is locally intruded by Lower Jurassic Ferrar Dolerite sills. The Exposure Hill Formation is a basaltic pyroclastic unit formed as a result of phreatomagmatic processes. Locally it has interbedded volcaniclastic sandstones and finer grained beds. The Kirkaptrick Basalt comprises thick flood basalt lava flows. The sample data are listed by geographic locality.
