Ross orogen of the Transantarctic Mountains by Edmund Stump Download PDF EPUB FB2

The Ross orogen of the Transantarctic Mountains is the part of the orogenic system that formed at the Pacific continental margin of present day Antarctica. According to a recent hypothesis this continental margin was created by the rifting and subsequent drift of Laurentia from Gondwana.

With an unparalleled breadth and depth of information Cited by: This book presents a summary of the geology of the Transantarctic Mountains for Earth scientists who may want to work there or who need an overview of the geologic history of this region. In addition, the properties of the East Antarctic ice sheet and of the meteorites that accumulate on its surface are treated in separate chapters.

This book provides a detailed synthesis of the history of the Neoproterozoic Ross orogen. In doing so, it incorporates classical studies with discussions of the most recent and controversial research from the international community. The book also includes a comprehensive bibliography and a historical chronology of all expeditions that have worked on the Ross orogen in the Transantarctic Cited by: The Ross orogen of Antarctica is one of Earth's great Phanerozoic mountain belts.

It is thought from igneous geochemistry, deformation patterns, and sedimentation history to be the result of late Neoproterozoic and early Paleozoic plate-margin convergence between paleo-Pacific oceanic lithosphere and continental lithosphere represented by the composite East Antarctic shield.

Book Review: The Ross Orogen of the Transantarctic Mountains. Cambridge University Press, Cambridge, U.K. ISBN Price: £60; US$ hardbackAuthor: K. Birkenmajer. The Transantarctic Mountains were first seen by Captain James Ross in from the Ross Sea.

The range is a natural barrier that must be crossed to reach the South Pole from the Ross Ice Shelf. The first crossing of the Transantarctic Mountains took place during the British National Antarctic Expedition at the Ross Ice Shelf.

The Permian-Triassic Transantarctic basin, which occupied the Panthalassan margin of the East Antarctic craton, including the present Transantarctic and Ellsworth Mountains, evolved above a mid-Paleozoic passive continental margin basement through the following stages: (1) Carboniferous/Permian extension, (2) late Early Permian back-arc basin, (3) Late Permian and Triassic foreland basin, and.

• Transantarctic Mountains form a physiographic boundary between craton and a younger extensional province. • Geologic history spans ~ Ga to the present-day, including craton, orogen, and basin evolution.

• Tectonic regimes include rift, passive-margin, convergent-margin, and extensional settings. Northern Victoria Land (Antarctica) is made up of three terranes of Cambrian–Ordovician rocks: the Wilson (WT), Bowers (BT) and Robertson Bay terranes (RBT).

The WT comprises a low- to high-grade metasedimentary sequence intruded by calc-alkaline plutons with magmatic arc affinity; the BT is composed of low-grade metavolcanic and metasedimentary rocks usually interpreted as an intra.

The Pan-African orogenies that stabilized the East Antarctic Shield took place in two main zones; a broad region between the Shackleton Mountain Range, caused by the collision with South Africa, and India, and along the Transantarctic Mountains (Ross Orogeny).
