About The Product

Published via the yank Geophysical Union as a part of the Geophysical Monograph Series.

This quantity, which all started as a memorial to a pioneering scientist of one other age, has turn into a memorial additionally to 2 scientists of our personal day, Harry Wexler and Edward C. Thiel, every one of whom has made major contributions to our elevated figuring out of Antarctica. In his prior actions as leader Scientist for the U.S.-IGY Antarctic software, Harry Wexler served as an inspirational strength via his all?]encompassing medical curiosity and his nice love for Antarctica. He continuously under pressure the wide view and the interdisciplinary features of this system; this used to be his consultant in organizing the Symposium. As Convener and as Chairman of the classes on meteorology, oceanography, and glaciology, Harry Wexler inspired an entire and whole dialogue of the various fascinating topics mentioned during this quantity. Ed Thiel, via his committed and thorough exploration of Antarctica, has left his stamp not just in this quantity, yet in his many different works within which Antarctica has been unveiled and defined.

LATE PALAEOZOIC- MESOZOIC Fra. 4-The state of Antarctica in the late Paleozoic and early Mesozoic showing the extent of the depositional basin that gave rise to the Beacon System, and the LO'wer Jurassic volcanism in East Antarctiea. In the Upper Jurassic extensive andesite-rhyolite eruptions occurred in the Antarctic Peninsula and South Shetland Islands, ·while in Alexander Island ashes were deposited in the sea offshore (Fig. 3) (which formed alongside the stable block of East Antarctica) and intensive deposition, '\vhich subsequently gave rise to the grey,vacke facies sediments of the '\videspread Trinity Peninsula Series.
