  1. 1. P-T evolotion and High-temperature deformation of Precambrian eclogite, Sveconorwegian orogen

    University dissertation from Lund University, Faculty of Science, Department of Geology, Lithosphere and Biosphere Science

    Author : Lorraine Tual; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2016]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Eclogite; Precambrian; P–T path; Basal shear zone; Sveconorwegian orogen; Deformation; thermometry;

    Abstract : Bergskedjor är uppbyggda av olika slags berggrund som skjutits samman i de zoner på Jorden där tektoniska plattor möts (konvergerar). Sådana processer sker i dag exempelvis i Himalaya, Alperna eller Anderna, men det finns också gamla, nu inaktiva, bergskedjor som de Skandinaviska Kaledoniderna (ca 400 miljoner år gammal) eller den Svekonorvegiska bergskedjan (ca 1000 miljoner år gammal, i sydvästra Sverige och södra Norge).

  2. 2. Early structural and metamorphic evolution of the Scandinavian Caledonides: a study of the eclogite-bearing Seve Nappe Complex at the Arctic Circle, Sweden

    University dissertation from Lund University, Faculty of Science, Department of Geology, Lithosphere and Biosphere Science

    Author : Lena Gunlög Albrecht; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2000]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; oblique compression.; C -type shear bands; anastomozing shear zones; tubular folds; lineation-parallel folds; northern Sweden; Grapesvare Nappe; Seve Nappe Complex; Finnmarkian; Eclogite; corona dolerite; Petrology; mineralogy; geochemistry; Petrologi; mineralogi; geokemi;

    Abstract : In the Seve Nappe Complex of the Swedish Caledonides, coronitic diabases pass into eclogites; sometimes the transition occurs within one and the same boudin. Calculated pressure-temperature conditions for the eclogite facies stage are 20-27 kbar and 650-750°. READ MORE

  3. 3. Crystal chemistry of Fe-Ti oxides in mafic rocks and metabasites: A study aimed at refinement of geological tools and interpretations

    University dissertation from Department of Mineralogy and Petrology, Lund University

    Author : Benyam Estifanos; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [1997]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Fe-Ti oxide; hercynite; siderite; stilpnomelane; olivine corona; Swedish Caledonides; hysteresis; PIXE; synchrotron XRD; Rietveld; microprobe; red corundum; palaeomagnetism; eclogite; plagioclase clouding; dolerite; pyroxene gneiss; Geology; physical geography; Geologi; fysisk geografi;

    Abstract : This thesis consists of four subprojects: (A) ‘Clouding of plagioclase by Fe-Ti oxides’, (B) ‘Fe-Ti oxides during high-pressure metamorphism of mafic rocks’, (C) ‘Magnetic study of Fe-Ti oxides in mafic rocks and metabasites’, and (D) ‘Topotactic phase transitions in oxide minerals’. A) In southern Sweden dolerite dikes and gabbros with clouded plagioclase are common. READ MORE

  4. 4. Deep subduction of the Seve Nappe Complex in the Scandinavian Caledonides

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Iwona Klonowska; Uppsala universitet.; [2017]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; geothermobarometry; thermodynamic modelling; Raman spectroscopy; diamond; ultrahigh-pressure metamorphism; eclogite; peridotite; gneiss;

    Abstract : This thesis seeks to improve our understanding of the processes involved in continental collision zones, with a particular focus on subduction-exhumation. The main objective of this work has been to define the tectonometamorphic evolution of the deeply subducted Seve Nappe Complex (SNC) in the Scandinavian Caledonides. READ MORE

  5. 5. Pressure, temperature and time constraints on tectonic models for southwestern Sweden

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Eric Austin Hegardt; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2010]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Sveconorwegian; Gothian; Hallandian; U‐Pb zircon ion probe dating; Sm-Nd garnet dating; thermobarometry; continental subduction; Eastern Segment; Median Segment; Western Segment;

    Abstract : In this work, a number of key localities have been investigated in detail in order to provide precise constraints on models for the tectonic evolution of southern Sweden. The new data presented in this thesis show that there are large differences in terms of pre-Sveconorwegian tectonic evolution between the Eastern and Median-Western Segments situated on either side of the Mylonite Zone, a major shear zone as well as a structural and lithological boundary.
