Other Sectors of the Antarctic Continental Margin

Other sectors of the Antarctic margin, than the five ANTOSTRAT project working areas discussed above, have been studied more fully than previously during the past 5-7 years, in a time of renewed interest in MCS studies of the continental margin. These regions include similar geomorphic and stratigraphic features. Although we do not include them in the discussion below due to space considerations, we include here representative citations to some of the studies published for the Bellingshausen and Amundsen seas (Hollister et al., 1976; Tucholke and Houtz, 1976; Tucholke, 1977; Kimura, 1982; Yamaguchi et al., 1988; Cunningham et al., 1994, 2002; Gohl et al., 1997, 2007; Nitsche et al., 1997, 2000; Wellner et al., 2001, 2006; Lowe and Anderson, 2002; O Cofaigh et al., 2005; Dowdeswell et al., 2006; Evans et al., 2006; Scheuer et al., 2006a, b; Larter et al., 2007; Uenzelmann-Neben et al., 2007) and for offshore areas of Queen Maud Land and Enderby Land (Kuvaas et al., 2004a, b, 2005; Hinz et al., 2005; Stagg et al., 2004a, b; Leitchenkov et al., 2007; Solli et al.. 2007a, b, c).
