  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; [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

  2. 2. Geochronology of Tectonothermal Events in the Parautochthonous Eastern Segment of the Sveconorwegian (Grenvillian) Orogen, Southwestern Sweden

    University dissertation from Department of Mineralogy and Petrology, Lund University

    Author : Ulf Söderlund; [1999]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Sveconorwegian; SW Sweden; Eastern Segment; geochronology; U-Pb; zircon; titanite; polymetamorphic; high-grade; Geology; exhumation; physical geography; Geologi; fysisk geografi;

    Abstract : Timing of deformation and metamorphism yield important information for understanding the development of orogenic processes and correlation of mobile belts and continents. This thesis adds new geochronological data constraining the age of protoliths and events of reworking in the frontal region of the c. 1.2-0. READ MORE

  3. 3. Sveconorwegian orogenesis in the southwestern Baltic Shield - Zircon geochronology and tectonothermal setting of orthogneisses in SW Sweden

    University dissertation from Department of Geology, Lund University

    Author : Jenny Andersson; [2000]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Petrology; Geologi; fysisk geografi; physical geography; Geology; structural markers; augen gneiss; orthogneiss; migmatite; ion microprobe; Pb-Pb evaporation; U-Pb; geochronology; zircon; Sweden; Mylonite Zone; Western Segment; Sveconorwegian orogen; Eastern Segment; mineralogy; geochemistry; Petrologi; mineralogi; geokemi;

    Abstract : The Mylonite zone (MZ) is a prominent late-Sveconorwegian lithological terrane boundary in the SW Baltic Shield along which large-scale crustal block movements took place during the Sveconorwegian orogeny. The southern section of the MZ also defines a conspicuous metamorphic break separating upper amphibolite and high-pressure granulite facies rocks in the parautochthonous Eastern Segment (ES), from middle amphibolite facies rocks in the overlying Western Segment (WS).

  4. 4. Sveconorwegian metallogenesis in Sweden

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Stockholm University

    Author : Elisabet Alm; Henrik Stendal; [2000]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; geokemi; Geochemistry;

    Abstract : Two main ore types are found in the Sveconorwegian Orogen in southwestern Sweden (Southwest Scandinavian Domain). One of them comprises stratabound Cu mineralizations in the Dal group, located west of lake Vänern. READ MORE

  5. 5. Geochemical Development of Proterozoic Granites in the SW Baltic Shield

    University dissertation from SMC, Box 839, SE-981 28 Kiruna, Sweden

    Author : Kirsten Holme; [2001]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; principal component analysis; granite classification; magma evolution; magma genesis; granite; Eastern Segment; Western Segment; Southwestern Swedish Gneiss Complex; Sweden; Sveconorwegian Orogen; Petrology; mineralogy; geochemistry; Petrologi; mineralogi; geokemi; Geology; physical geography; Geologi; fysisk geografi;

    Abstract : The plutonic rocks in the Western Segment of the Southwestern Swedish Gneiss Complex show a distinct geochemical evolution. The 1.6 Ga Åmål granitoids and Slottsbron migmatites are a quartz dioritic to granodioritic, calc-alkaline rock suite with smooth, but somewhat fractionated, REE and other trace-element patterns.
