Geological mapping and geochemical and geochronology analysis of rock samples from Panarama Ridge in the Koetllitz-Walcott Glacier area
Entry ID: K062_1997_1998_NZ_1

Abstract: The Ross Orogeny refers to the collision event when East and West Antarctica met, resulting in subduction with associated deformation, crustal thickening, metamorphism and igneous activity. In the Koettlitz Walcott Glacier area, nepheline syenites and associated carbonatites were found. These rocks are characteristically associated with areas where the curst was pulled apart and stretched, not in ... View entire text
