Abstract

Thurston Peninsula, although largely snow covered, exposes massive to foliated dioritic rock and schist exhibiting northeast-trending structures. One basalt pebble was found. The adjacent continental shelf is cut by submarine valleys. Peter I Island, a dissected basaltic volcano 250 miles to the northeast, was visited.
