Collaborative Research: Polyphase Orogenesis and Crustal Differentiation in West Antarctica
Entry ID: NSF-ANT09-44615

Abstract: Intellectual Merit: The northern Ford ranges in Marie Byrd Land, Antarctica, record events and processes that transformed a voluminous succession of Lower Paleozoic turbidites intruded by calc-alkaline plutonic rocks into differentiated continental crust along the margin of Gondwana. In this study the Fosdick migmatite-granite complex will be used to investigate crustal evolution through an ... View entire text
