The book deals with the record of important Neoproterozoic to Early Palaeozoic events in southwestern Gondwana, that heralded the Cambrian explosion and the dawn. Introduction [2] The West Antarctic rift system (WARS) is a region that has experienced diffuse continental extension and is similar in size to the Basin and Range province of the western United States (Figures 1 and 2).However, the thick ice sheet that dominates the WARS largely obscures the tectonic history and structure of the region.
