Title: The petrography and geology of South Georgia / George Walter Tyrrell.
Author(s): Tyrrell, George Walter.
Date: 1930.
Publisher: London: British Museum (Natural History)
In: Report on the geological collections made during the voyage of the Quest on the Shackleton-Rowett expedition to the South Atlantic and Weddell Sea in 1921-1922. (1930.),
Abstract: Proposes revisions to stratigraphic succession on South Georgia, based on detailed petrography of interbedded tuffs and volcanic greywackes and other sediments intruded by granite-gabbro complex, and discusses in relation to tectonics. Based on 120 rock specimens collected during Shackleton's 1921-22 Quest Antarctic expedition.
