Geological Development of the Proterozoic Basement of East Antarctica in the Prydz Bay-Prince Charles Mountains RegionEntry ID: ASAC_51
Abstract: The structural and metamorphic history of the Proterozoic of the northern Prince Charles Mountains will be determined and compared with the geological history of the Prydz Bay region. The nature of the 1000 Ma granulite facies metamorphism, and its regional variability will be assessed. The role of fluids in this metamorphism will also be evaluated.
