Analysis of shallow cores (stratigraphy, thickness and facies analysis, ageing) from Allan Hills and Table Mountain and assessment of contamination of diesel drilling fluid from DVDP-6 core, Lake Vida, 1972
Entry ID: K047_2000_2001_NZ_1

Abstract: Shallow coring of permafrost glacial sediments was completed of the Sirius Group at Allan Hills to provide stratigraphic cores for thickness and facies analysis and at Table Mountain for comparative age analysis by Be and N inventory of 3 different aged deposits (Sirius, Sirius regolith and debris flow). At Allan Hills, 2 holes and 8.2m of core were recovered in Trudge Valley. Coring did not ... View entire text
