    1. 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.

      Continental rifts are elongated depressions in the Earth's surface, often more than 1, km long, 20 km wide, and 10 km deep, filled with sediments and volcanic rocks. Conventional models of rift Cited by: This is a relatively moderate extension if compared to extension across terrestrial continental rifts (e.g., Kenya Rift southern part: 5–10 km, Kenya Rift northern part, 35–40 km [Mechie et al., ]) but consistent with crustal extension measured across the Tempe Fossae Rift with amounts of km to km [Hauber and Kronberg, ].Cited by:
