Geological investigation of the stratigraphic succession through the thickest portion of the Bowers Groups and rock and fossil samples for paleontological and depositional dating, Bowers Mountains, Northern Victoria Land
Entry ID: K051_1973_1974_NZ_1

Abstract: The Lower Paleozoic rocks of North Victoria Land occupy a key position in any reconstruction of the New Zealand/Australian/Antarctic segment of Gondwanaland.
