Geological samples collected from Dronning-Maud Land, East Antarctica, 2007-2008


Sample inventory data related to a field campaign of approximately 10 weeks, carried out during 2007-2008. The primary focus was sample collection, with the rest of the time being used for mapping. All of the samples taken were of rocks that were found cropping out as nunataks. The investigation took place entirely within the the Dronning-Maud Land area of East Antarctica (Norwegian Sector).
