Geochronology of accessory allanite and monazite in the Barrovian metamorphic sequence of the Central Alps, Switzerland

Boston, Kate R.; Rubatto, Daniela; Hermann, Jörg; Engi, Martin; Amelin, Yuri


The formation of accessory allanite, monazite and rutile in amphibolite-facies rocks across the Barrovian sequence of the Central Alps (Switzerland) was investigated with a combination of petrography and geochemistry and related to the known structural and metamorphic evolution of the Lepontine dome. For each of these minerals a specific approach was adopted for geochronology, taking into account internal zoning and U–Th–Pb systematics. In-situ U–Th–Pb dating of allanite and monazite by ion...[Show more]
