  1. 1. Metamorphic zircon formation in gabbroic rocks – the tale of microtextures

    Author : Victoria Beckman; Berggrundsgeologi; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Zircon formation; metamorphism; prograde; gabbr; zircon; baddeleyite; zircon; baddeleyite; metamorphic; prograde; zircon textures;

    Abstract : Dating of metamorphic events is crucial for the understanding and reconstruction of large-scale geological processes such as orogenesis. Zircon is one of the most commonly used minerals for dating of igneous and metamorphic events. Zircon incorporates uranium and excludes lead during crystallization, and with time the uranium decays to lead. READ MORE

  2. 2. Understanding Zircon Geochronology - Constraints from Imaging and Trace Elements

    Author : Andrius Rimsa; Berggrundsgeologi; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; hydrothermal; Petrology; mineralogy; hydraulic fracturing; Sveconorwegian; incipient charnockite; EBSD; cathodoluminescence; REE; Zircon; U-Pb geochronology; geochemistry; Petrologi; mineralogi; geokemi; Kerala Khondalite Belt;

    Abstract : Formation of incipient charnockite in Söndrum, SW Sweden and the Kerala Khondalite Belt (KKB), S. India is accompanied by zircon growth. The age of the dehydration event is constrained by dating newly formed zircon to 1397±4 Ma (2?, MSWD=1.7) in Söndrum and ca. READ MORE

  3. 3. The evolution of lunar breccias : U-Pb geochronology of Ca-phosphates and zircon using Secondary Ion Mass Spectrometry

    Author : Fiona Karen Thiessen; Martin Whitehouse; Alexander Nemchin; Victoria Pease; Barbara Cohen; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Moon; impact breccias; Apollo missions; impact event; Late Heavy Bombardment; zircon; Ca-phosphates; U-Pb; SIMS; geochronology; Geology; geologi;

    Abstract : Planetary bodies in our Solar System, including the Moon, were exposed to an intense asteroid bombardment between ~4.5-3.8 Ga, shaping their surfaces and leaving visible “footprints” in the form of large impact basins. The end of this period (~4. READ MORE

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

    Author : Jenny Andersson; Berggrundsgeologi; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; 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).

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

    Author : Fitsum Girum Yeshanew; Victoria Pease; Martin Whitehouse; Hugh Rollinson; Kjell Billström; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; 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
