Abstract: Inferred fault lines in the rocks of the Transantarctic Mountains in the area of the Wilson Piedmont Glacier were investigated to add to the understanding of the uplift of the mountain range. Specifically, the Precambrian to Holocene geology of the Wilson Piedmont Glacier area was surveyed to i) define the eastern limits and geometry of the marker horizons which could serve to identify faults, ...
