Extensive plateau basalts on the southern Tabarin Peninsula may have erupted from fissures, small centers, or a large shield volcano. Basalts and tuff breccias are also found on Jonassen, Andersson, Rosamel and Dundee Islands. The only radiometric ages are 1.1 and 0.9 million years ago from rocks on the Tabarin Peninsula (LeMasurier and Thomson 1990).
