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


Geological analyses were conducted on rock samples collected in Dronning-Maud Land during the 2007-2008 field season. Analyses included grain-size determination, dating, whole rock and inclusion mineralogy, and geochemical analyses. 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).
