Field mapping data and petrological collections for petrography, geochronology and geochemistry, of rocks from Mt Morning, southern Victoria Land, Antarctica
Entry ID: K062_2004_2006_NZ_1

Abstract: Mt Morning is the most southerly of a series of central type volcanoes that make up the McMurdo Volcanic Group of south Victoria Land. It is characterised by a trachyte - basanite - phonolite assemblage. The distribution of volcanic rock types exposed on the northern flanks of the volcano and Mason Spur (15 km south of the summit caldera) were mapped and a suite of samples were collected for ...
