Summary
Abstract: The area around the Mariner Glacier was investigated to make a geological survey of the whole section, and in particular, to ascertain the relationship and contact between the sedimentary rocks known to lie in the north and east of the glacier and in the igneous rocks in the south. The expedition was in two stages. The first stage was around the head of the glacier and through the mountains on to ... View entire text
