Zircon equilibria in metamorphic rocks
This study defines a number of fundamental principles of zircon equilibria in metamorphic rocks using a combination of traditional metamorphic petrology, trace element geochemistry, experimental petrology, thermobarometry and geochronology. It is demonstrated that solid-state zircon formation in metamorphic rocks is more likely to occur during retrograde rather than prograde processes. Zircon equilibria in metamorphic rocks is also found to be highly temperature dependent; phases such as...[Show more]
