Geological mapping and analysis of granitoid basement rocks near the Carlyon Glacier and Brown Hills area to determine the tectonic environment during the Ross Orogeny
Entry ID: K062_2000_2001_NZ_1

Abstract: The Ross Orogeny refers to a sequence of geological events when East and West Antarctica met, resulting in subduction with associated deformation, crustal thickening, metamorphism and igneous activity. The rocks in South Victoria Land have a different character that is more compatible with crustal extension rather than subduction and continental convergence and were termed the Koettlitz Glacier ...
