Geological investigations of geological markers and UTh-He apatite analysis of collected samples to determine the nature, amount and timing of vertical and horizontal deformation along the Transantarctic Mountains
Entry ID: K101_2002_2003_NZ_1

[ Get Data ]

Abstract: Geological investigations were conducted to better constrain the nature, amount and timing of vertical and horizontal deformation along the Transantarctic Mountains. Geological markers, both horizontal and vertical, were used to identify movement along faults. These markers include Ferrar dolerite sills, the Kukri Erosion Surface, boundaries between basement rock units and Vanda dike swarms. ... View entire text

Quality This project was incompleted. Rock samples are held by GNS and are catalogued in the PETLAB database. Please contact the investigator for more information.

The logistic report submitted to Antarctica New Zealand has spreadsheet data of all the rock samples including sample number, collector, date, field number, in situ (y/n), latitude and longitude, country, location methods, site description, rock description and age.
