Geophysical investigations (seismic, aero and ground base magnetic, gravity, GPR and bathymetry surveys) of the tectonic, sedimentary and volcanic history of the Victoria Land Basing - site survey for ANDRILL project

Abstract: A multi-national team (Germany, Italy, New Zealand, the United Kingdom and the USA) undertook seismic reflection, aeromagnetic surveys, ground-based magnetic and gravity measurements to image the structure and geometry of key sedimentary depo-centers and associated volcanoes in the Southern McMurdo Sound sector of the Victoria Land Basin to gain new knowledge of the development of the Victoria ...
