AFI 01/27_02 - Dyke intrusions as tracers of continental break-up processes - Ar-Ar dating, field data and selected geochemical analysis data of rock samples collected in Dronning Maud Land in 2000/2001
Entry ID: GB-NERC-BAS-AEDC-00251

Abstract: The style and volume of magmatism varies between margins from large volume flood basalts such as the Parana or Deccan provinces to less volumetric margins such as the southern part of the South Atlantic. This case (Collaborative Awards in Science and Engineering) studentship was intended to provide support to study the evolution of the break-up of Africa and East Antarctica which occurred in the ...
