Architecture of the East Antarctic lithosphere-Terre Adélie

The main goal of the ArLiTA project is to characterize the architecture and the deformation structures of the Neoarchean and the Paleoproterozoic lithosphere of the Terre Adélie and George Vth Land (East Antarctica: 135 to 145°E). The project integrates various complementary approaches: mapping from seismological data, systematic mapping of the structures by tectonic analysis, petrophysics (textural analyses, Anisotropy of Magnetic Susceptibility (AMS), seismic properties modeling…), characterization of materials and paleofluids (petrology, geochemistry, datations) and thermomecanics (thermobarometry).
