391 pages

Select type: O-Book


Published by the American Geophysical Union as part of the Antarctic Research Series, Volume 46.

The papers presented in this volume are an outgrowth of the 1981-1982 International Northern Victoria Land Project. The project developed following a New Zealand initiative in 1977 at the Third Symposium on Antarctic Geology and Geophysics, held in Madison, Wisconsin. Geologists from Australia, New Zealand, and the United States participated. Air logistics were provided by the U.S. Antarctic Research Program (USARP). Parties were staged out of a remote, helicopter?]supported field camp located on Evans Névé.
