Late Proterozoic Tectonics in the Prydz Bay Area
Entry ID: ASAC_519

Abstract: From the abstracts of some of the referenced papers:

The East Antarctic mobile belt as exposed in Prydz Bay presents an excellent example of a poly-metamorphic terrain where complicated high-grade structures can be grouped on the basis of lineation direction, sense of shear and metamorphic grade. In this way local intricacies resulting from truncating and interfering foliations and folds can be ... View entire text
