Abstract:
The geological data sets for the Ford Ranges of western Marie Byrd Land include: - Structural measurements for minor brittle faults, fracture arrays, and dike arrays - 40Ar/39Ar geochronological data for mafic dikes and volcanic rock samples - Geochemical analyses (major, trace, and isotope) for Pleistocene basalts - Geological map of the Ford Ranges [includes revisions to USGS maps A-6, A-7, A-11; Wade et al. 1977, 1978] Data exist for nearly all mountain ranges and nunatak groups in the Ford Ranges. All data are in Excel Worksheet format. The geology data were collected during a joint geology/aerogeophysics program designed to address questions of crustal structure and tectonic development along the eastern Ross Sea margin. The objective of the geological field research program, conducted during 1998-99 and 1999-2000, was kinematic analysis of mesoscopic structures, including brittle faults and dikes, in the ice-covered region where major structures are concealed. The purpose was to decipher the extensional history of the region, and address hypotheses about the timing and character of tectonism in the eastern Ross Sea sector. Related datasets are reported in "http://gcmd.nasa.gov/Data/portals/amd/" (Search string: SOAR1999WMB) "http://depts.washington.edu/cosmolab/data/MBL_exp_ages.html"

Attribute_Accuracy:
Attribute_Accuracy_Report:
Compass measurements are accurate within +/- 5? of bearing or inclination. Considerations are the strong variation in magnetic declination in proximity to the S magnetic pole and working conditions in the polar climate (element of human error due to high winds and cold temperatures/bulky clothing).
