Jurassic dike intruding marble on Knattebrauta

The Knattebruata (the crag slope) are a group of low-lying nuntaks aligned northeast-southwest in the H. U. Sverdrupfjella of western Queen Maud Land (Antarctica). This photo shows exposures of one of the largest nunataks in the group, here with a Jurassic-age mafic dike intruding Mesoproterozoic-age marble.
