Regional stratigraphy, sedimentology structure, metamorphic and tectonic history of the lower grade Skelton Group meta-sediments between the Skelton and Koettlitz Glaciers
Entry ID: K002_1975_1976_NZ_1

Abstract: A study of the low grade meta-sedimentary rocks of the Skelton and Koettlitz Glacier areas including the unmapped Mt Cocks Range at the head of the Koettlitz Glacier was investigated to add to the limited geological knowledge of the area. The specific aims were to fill in the unmapped Mt Cocks area between the low grade meta-sediments of the Skelton Glacier and the high grade metasediments of the ... View entire text
