The Dry Valleys Drilling Project (DVDP) was predominately an international project between scientists from New Zealand, the US, and Japan, which drilled 14 holes in the Dry Valleys of Antarctica (especially ...

4. Examination of fossilized biota, especially barnacles, of the Scallop Hill Formation and Taylor Formation groups to reconstruct the palaeoenvironment [K241_1985_1986_NZ_1]
Barnacles are useful in palaeobathymetry and in palaeotemperature studies. However, barnacle plates are elusive in the field, and when fractured may be overlooked by the field geologist. The palaeoecology ...
