Record #117332:

Raised beaches of the Bunger Hills, Antarctica / Eric A. Colhoun, Donald A. Adamson.

Title: Raised beaches of the Bunger Hills, Antarctica / Eric A. Colhoun, Donald A. Adamson.
Author(s): Colhoun, Eric A.
Adamson, Donald A.
Date: 1992.
Publisher: Canberra: Australian Goverment Publishing Service
In: ANARE Reports. (1992.),
Abstract: Describes and interprets raised marine terraces of Bunger Hills Oasis, based on field studies in January and February 1986. Discusses results obtained for height of marine limits, morphology and sedimentary features of beaches, and radiocarbon dating of marine shells. All raised beaches recorded are of Middle to Late Holocene age, and indicate average isostatic uplift of 1.4 m ka⁻¹ during this time. Conclusions can be drawn about thickness and extent of Holocene ice at this and neighbouring sites.
