Abstract

Gravel and boulder deposits (mainly Holocene in age) of continental and marine origin, are relatively abundant in ice-free areas near the seashore in Antarctica, especially in the South Shetland Islands. The geophysical study of these unconsolidated deposits allows establishing the possible existence of permafrost and buried ice bodies, which have an environmental interest. The establishment of the internal structure of these detritic deposits, as well as the geometry of their basement, by means of geophysical methods, also allow making deductions about the possible existence of recent tectonic episodes.
