Spinel granulite in Odesan area, South Korea: Tectonic implications for the collision between the North and South China blocks

Oh, Chang Whan; Kim, Sung Won; Williams, Ian


Spinel granulite formed in the Fe-Al-rich layers in migmatitic gneiss adjacent to a late Paleozoic collision-related mangerite intrusion in the Odesan area, eastern Gyeonggi Massif, South Korea, contains the high-temperature (HT) assemblage Crd + Spl + Crn. Spinel and cordierite compositions indicate peak metamorphic conditions of 914-1157 °C. Retrograde metamorphism reached amphibolite facies where garnet and cordierite broke down to biotite, sillimanite and quartz. These conditions, and the...[Show more]
