... and thus define the evolution of ice volume through time. Ice-sheet flow in Mac. Robertson Land is similar to much of East Antarctica ( Bamber et al., 2000 ), where outlet glaciers drain slow-moving ice from the continental interior to an extensive calving ice margin at the coast. At Mount Henderson...

... are reported in the review by Link et al. (1993) . We relate all formations to the stratigraphy in the Missoula and Glacier Park areas in the eastern basin ( Table 2 ). The Belt-Purcell basin fill is strongly asymmetric; it consists predominantly of mudstone and siltstone in the eastern and central parts...

The former may be directly traced as the poorly exposed Robertson Member in a narrow southern section of the east Amery Ice Shelf coast, together with indirect evidence in the form of inherited ages elsewhere ( Liu et al. 2007 ).

... of driving stress ( Quincey et al. 2009 ). Commonly, supraglacial or proglacial lake formation coincides with this process, and once a lake crosses a threshold of depth of about 80 m the lake-marginal glacier ice starts to calve ( Quincey et al. 2007 ; Robertson et al. 2012 ) with potentially dramatic...

Only in the accreted Bowers and Robertson Bay terranes of northern Victoria land, which reveal no clear record of pre-latest Mid-Cambrian or older folding, is the principal episode of Ross orogenic deformation demonstrably younger than Late...

... The WT/BT boundary is a first-order tectonic contact, which is well exposed between Lady Newnes Bay of the Ross Sea and the Lanterman Range. North of this range, it is hidden beneath the Rennick Glacier. The tectonic nature of the structure is that of a major shear zone. Conglomerates show...

The Tiger arc igneous activity was coeval to the Wilson continental arc (represented by the Granite Harbour intrusive rocks), with the two subduction zones merging southwards into one. The migration of the Wilson arc towards...

Experimental observations by Robertson (1874) showed that increased salinity promotes the ‘precipitation’ of clays where such river-borne particles meet saline waters and provided the fundamental basis for numerous modern studies of the behaviour of fine grained sediments in estuarine and deltaic environments...

... with values typical of fluvial systems (from 1 km/km 2 to >100 km/km 2 ). The highest densities occur in six coastal basins in the Robertson Bay area (Dugdale, Ironside, Murray, Ommanney, Pitke-vitch, Shipley Glaciers) with values falling between 0.70 and 0.86 km/km 2 . Relatively low values are noticed...

... with a moraine offset relative to the coeval swarm of small moraines formed in the shallow-water zone. The grounding-line system at Mona commenced its development as an ice-contact submarine fan, while the glacier front was thinning and grinding to a halt on a bedrock threshold. The ice flux declined...

... from an ice-free ocean is the sine qua non to build glaciers. The syngenetic extent of the cold desert toward the equator is the limiting factor for ice volume: when glaciations develop in intertropical mountains with the development of sea ice in the polar zones, glaciers recede by precipitation...
