Folco, L., P.
Rochette, N. Perchiazzi, M. D'Orazio, M.A. Laurenzi, and M.
Tiepolo, 2008, Microtektites
from Victoria Land Transantarctic Mountains.
Geology. vol.36, no. 4, pp. 291-294.

They documented a
microtektite (microscopic impact glass particles)
strewn field in the Victoria LandTransantarctic Mountains, Antarctica.
They found "the physical and chemicalproperties define a coherent
population with a geochemical affinity to Australasianmicrotektites
and compatible Quaternary 40Ar-39Ar formation age." They argue
Transantarctic Mountain microtektites (TAMM) define the
southern extension of theAustralasian strewn field."
