  1. 1. U-Pb geochronology of tectonothermal events related to the Rodinia and Gondwana supercontinents -observations from Antarctica and Baltica

    University dissertation from Department of Geology, Lund University

    Author : Oskar Paulsson; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2003]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; klimatologi; pedology; climatology; Fysisk geografi; geomorfologi; marklära; kartografi; geomorphology; Physical geography; Gondwana; Rodinia; Antarctica; Baltica; Dronning Maud Land; cartography;

    Abstract : This thesis presents data from two areas, Dronning Maud Land, Antarctica, and the Scandinavian Caledonides, Baltica. In addition, a comparative geochronological study is presented. The bedrock of Dronning Maud Land (DML) is dominated by migmatitic gneisses and post-tectonic intrusions. READ MORE

  2. 2. The tectonic evolution of northwest Svalbard

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Geological Sciences, Stockholm University

    Author : Carl Henrik Pettersson; Stockholms universitet.; [2010]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Svalbard; Rodinia; Laurentia; Zircon; Provenance; Migmatites; Clockwise P-T; NATURAL SCIENCES Earth sciences Endogenous earth sciences Solid earth geology and petrology; NATURVETENSKAP Geovetenskap Endogen geovetenskap Berggrundsgeologi och petrologi; Geology; geologi;

    Abstract : Svalbard represents the uplifted and exhumed northwest corner of the Barents Sea Shelf. Pre-Carboniferous rocks of Svalbard are divided into the Eastern, Northwestern and Southwestern Terranes, were amalgamated during the Caledonian Orogen and are separated by north-south-trending strike-slip faults.

  3. 3. Mesoproterozoic crustal evolution in Southern Africa

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Geological Sciences, Stockholm University

    Author : Åsa Pettersson; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2008]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Namaqua-Natal province; Mezoproterozoic; geochronology; U-Pb zirkon dating; Sm-Nd model ages; Ar-Ar dating; Southern Africa;

    Abstract : The objects of this thesis were to use geochronology to investigate crustal evolution of part of Southern Africa that formed during a global event, resulting in the ~1 Ga supercontinent Rodinia. The timing of assembly by continent-continent collisions and the position of the individual continental blocks of this ancient landmass is still largely unknown. READ MORE

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

    Abstract : The 1.1-0.9 Ga Sveconorwegian orogen is one of several Grenvillian-aged orogenic belts that mark the amalgamation of supercontinent Rodinia. The highest-pressure rocks in the Sveconorwegian orogen are eclogites in the Eastern Segment (SW Sweden). READ MORE

  5. 5. New Zircon geochronological and Nd isotopic evidence for Neoproterozoic crust reworking events in the Abas terrane, Yemen

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Stockholm University

    Author : Fitsum Girum Yeshanew; Stockholms universitet.; [2014]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Precambrian; Arabian Shield; magmatism; U-Pb; zircon; post-collisional magmatism; Nd isotopes; Geology; geologi;

    Abstract : The Arabian-Nubian Shield is an excellent natural laboratory to study crust formation processes during the Neoproterozoic. It is one of the largest juvenile tracts of continental crust formed during this time. It diachronously evolved between the breakup of Rodinia (c.780 Ma) and amalgamation of Gondwana (c. READ MORE
