From passive margins to orogens: The link between ocean-continent transition zones and (ultra)high-pressure metamorphism

Beltrando, Marco; Rubatto, Daniela; Manatschal, Gianreto


A lithostratigraphic association consisting of serpentinized mantle rocks, continent-derived allochthons, mid-oceanic ridge gabbros of Jurassic age and post-rift sediments, typical of an ocean-continent transition, is found in the eclogitic Piemonte units, in the Western Alps. In situ U-Pb geochronology was performed on zircons from an orthogneiss sampled at the bottom of a sliver of continental basement, in contact with serpentinites. Primary magmatic zircons of Permian age were overgrown by a...[Show more]
