The data portal offers an integrative "one-stop-stop" framework for coherent discovery, visualization,
download and dissemination of scientific information originating from nationally operated research
platforms and monitoring facilities (vessels, observatories, alert systems). The content offered
originates from distinct content providers by German marine research institutions
(see the About page) ranging from cruise-related
metadata to reports, publications, data (archived and near real time) and data products.
The portal is based on open technologies and access is freely available for scientists, funding
agencies and the public (no registration is required).
While we have many intensive efforts to provide well harmonized content, there is still much work to be
done, in particular under "more services". Please help us improving our services and content by filling
out our feedback form.
The Gneisses of the Bartica Assemblage, British Guiana
Cannon, R. T.
The results of an examination of one quarry within the gneisses of the Bartica Assemblage are described and the validity of these results throughout the whole of the Bartica Assemblage is discussed. The foliation and banding of the gneisses at Kereti Quarry are mainly the results of tectonism; concomitant metamorphism within the Amphibolite Facies was succeeded by a two-phase metasomatism involving successive additions of Na and K. These results appear valid throughout the Bartica Assemblage and it is further suggested that the main rock type distribution in the Bartica Assemblage is also controlled by tectonism.
