Area Description

The area is characterized by the presence of a large subglacial depression, the Wilkes Basin, representing one of the main topographic features of the East Antarctica Ice Sheet. It is delimited by the TAM, a 4000 km long mountain range that separates East Antarctica
from the West Antarctic Rift System and the Queen Mary Land. The region is of important to understand the tectonic evolution of the East Antarctic Craton and to constrain models of the super-continent cycle.
