The Gamburtsev Mountains in Antarctica are a chain of peaks the size of the Alps, but totally buried in ice. New data collection reveals how they might have gotten where they are.
The big problem for geologists is this: The Gamburtsev mountains appear to be relatively young—they bear jagged peaks that haven't yet been worn down by erosion. Other mountain ranges that look like that are geological infants: the craggy Himalayas, for instance, are still in the process of being formed. But scientists know of no geological events in Antarctica’s recent history that could have created the Gamburtsevs. There are no continental plates in the area, for example, that could have squeezed together to push up mountains, which is how the Himalayas were
But there is a big rift, and massive extrusion along a center fault, so maybe not the topical EDM arc strike at work.
Might one expect another form of electrical action there at the pole? whatever,
there is clearly excess pressure inside.
I dont see the need for excess pressure if material is being pulled out, not
pushed out, but if there was indeed resistance heating underground then there
would be expansion and pressure. I'm just thinking of the Tiger Stripe rifts
on Enceladus, is material being pulled or pushed?
I can simplify this and say that the entire earth is an example of electrical scaring and carving.

The present day location is north of Montefiasconi. There is a circular depression just west of the mountain and from what I can tell, there is also a central mound within this structure. Have a look. http://maps.google.com/maps?ll=42.64472 ... ,11.985833
Dating the site could be done using polar magnetic reconstructions from melted rock to differentiate it from the volcano itself.
