Abstract

The Prince Charles Mountains constitute by far the best-exposed cross section through the East Antarctic Shield, extending for over 500 kilometers along the drainage basin of the Lambert Glacier-Amery Ice Shelf system. They consist of three distinct geological terranes: the Archaean to 'Mesoproterozoic Ruker Terrane in the south and the Mesoproterozoic to early Neoproterozoic Fisher and Beaver-Lambert Terranes in the north.
