Harrington, H.J.; Wood, B.L.; McKellar, I.C.; Lensen, G.J. 1967 Topography and geology of the Cape Hallett district, Victoria Land, Antarctica. Wellington: Government Printer. New Zealand Geological Survey bulletin 80 99 p.

Abstract: The Geological Survey party had seven weeks in the field, mid-December 1957 to mid-February 1958, and did about 160 km of travelling in Weasels (tracked vehicles), and about 400 km of sledging by man-hauling, with additional side trips for geology and surveying. The vast scale of the terrain, exceptionally clear visibility, and the simplicity of the geology allowed considerable extrapolation of observations, with the help of field glasses, beyond the area actually traversed. It has been possible therefore to produce this account with reconnaissance geological and topographic maps of the leading features of the district extending for 140 km along the coast from Robertson Bay to the Lady Newnes Ice Shelf, and for about 120 km inland on the line of the Tucker Glacier.
