Using diamict and glacio-tectonised samples to determine previous glacial overriding in the Allan Hills nunatak
Entry ID: K042_1999_2000_NZ_1

Abstract: The character and form of previous glacial overriding in the Allan Hills nunatak was determined by describing and quantifying the glacio-tectonised bedrock from Sirius related glaciations.
