...) is tentatively correlated with the Pluto Glacier Formation of Alexander Island. Three dominantly volcanic formations are recognized on Adelaide Island, akin to the volcanic rocks of the Alexander Island Volcanic Group; the Mount Liotard Formation is formed of 2 km of basaltic andesite lavas, whilst the Bond...

... Abstract The Antarctic continent, which contains enough ice to raise sea level globally by around 60 m, is the last major scientific frontier on our planet. We know far more about the surfaces of the Moon, Mars and around half of Pluto than we do about the underside of the Antarctic ice sheet...

... perpendicular to it, and indicate extension parallel to the coast. In summary, George VI Ice Shelf is supplied almost entirely from ice streams emanating from the interior of Palmer Land. Only in a few cases (Eros, Grotto, Jupiter/Haumea, Pluto and Mars glaciers) do Alexander Island’s own glaciers extend...

... and were crystallized from magmas. Ultimately, it was the recognition of dikes (tabular bodies of rock that crosscut older rocks) that vanquished the Neptunists. Plutonists successfully argued that these rocks could not have been deposited from the sea, and Pluto, Roman god of the underworld ( F ig . 1...

... relevant to Earth history on the scale of hundreds of millions of years, the effects of Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto can be ignored. We acknowledge that numerous processes affect climate, the volume of the ocean basins, and the volume of water in them. Figure 1 shows the effects of periodic and chaotic...
