Abstract The brittle structures of the Bowers Mountains (northern Victoria Land, Antarctica) have been studied in order to fully characterise the poorly described pre-Cenozoic brittle tectonics of this area. Field work revealed that the dominant structures are steeply-dipping reverse and strike-slip faults, locally associated with positive flower structures, diffuse veining and hydrothermal alteration. Field observations are combined with different methods of inversion of fault–slip data and… CONTINUE READING
