Combined oxygen-isotope and U-Pb zoning studies of titanite: New criteria for age preservation
Titanite is an important U-Pb chronometer for dating geologic events, but its high-temperature applicability depends upon its retention of radiogenic lead (Pb). Experimental data predict similar rates of diffusion for lead (Pb) and oxygen (O) in titanite at granulite-facies metamorphic conditions (T = 650-800 °C). This study therefore investigates the utility of O-isotope zoning as an indicator for U-Pb zoning in natural titanite samples from the Carthage-Colton Mylonite Zone of the Adirondack...[Show more]
