Title: Fission track dating of granitic rocks in the Wright Valley
Description:
Abstract:
Samples of granitic rocks suitable for fission track dating from the eastern end of the Wright Valley and along the coast of McMurdo Sound between Gneiss Point and Spike Cape were collected. The samples were collected at controlled elevations over as wide a vertical interval as possible.
