Barrett, P.J. (ed.) 1986 Antarctic Cenozoic history from the MSSTS-1 drillhole McMurdo Sound. Wellington: SIPC. DSIR Bulletin 237 174 p.
Abstract: The terrestrial stratigraphic record of the Ross Sea region of Antarctica has 150 m.y. missing from Early Jurassic, when Ferrar magmatism ended, to Early Miocene, when the first eruptions of the McMurdo Volcanics began. Somewhere in this period the East Antarctic Ice sheet developed and the Transantarctic Mountains began to rise, but no strata in which these events have been recorded have been found on land. MSSTS-1 was an attempt to fill the gap by coring strata offshore but adjacent to the ice sheet and the mountains. (auth)
