Future Research

Future Research

Future research will involve detailed geochemical studies of the suites of samples collected this season. This will involve electron microprobe study and careful mineral separation followed by stable and radiogenic isotope analysis. The results will then be integrated into our extensive data-base of xenoliths from West Antarctica.

To some extent, this season marks a conclusion to the field work associated with xenolith studies in the Ross Sea area and West Antarctica. Time will be needed to work through the data and publish our results. A major aim is that this work can be integrated with available and planned geophysical studies of the lithosphere.
