Abstract

Despite accounts to the contrary, we have found that Mn-rich rock varnish is present in Antarctica, as others have before. It is chemically and texturally similar to many varnishes found in lower latitudes. Antarctic varnishes show considerable potential as a dating and paleoenvironmental research tool.
