The preliminary report is based on field observations made during 1958, and on the hand specimen identification of samples at The Ohio State University Research Foundation. The author, Richard Robertson, was a glaciologist with the wintering-over group at Wilkes IGY Station (66°15’S, 110°31’E) which is on the Antarctic coast in the Windmill Islands, south of Perth, Australia. This group of islands is probably the most extensive rock exposure between the Bunger Hills, 250 miles to the west, and King George V Land, 1000 miles to the east. The islands are contained in a rectangle 32 miles long and 9 miles wide, with the long side being in a northerly direction.
