Syntectonic emplacement of Late Cretaceous mafic dyke swarms in coastal southeastern China: Insights from magnetic fabrics, rock magnetism and field evidence

Pan, Xiaoqing; Shen, Zhongyue; Roberts, Andrew P.; Heslop, David; Shi, Linquan


Magma flow directions for 6 Late Cretaceous mafic dyke swarms exposed in coastal southeastern China (SE China) were analyzed using anisotropy of magnetic susceptibility (AMS) and field evidence. Normal AMS fabrics are predominant. The AMS of the dyke swarms originates mainly from the distribution anisotropy of intersertal magnetite that crystallized during late stage magma flow or after the magma cooled. The AMS fabrics record tectonic stress combined with magma flow. Sub-vertical to vertical...[Show more]
