High-grade gneisses from Mt. Riiser-Larsen, East Antarctica, have been dated by whole-rock-mineral Sm-Nd and SHRIMP zircon and monazite U-Pb to help define the thermal history of ultrahigh temperature (UHT) metamorphism in the Napier Complex. Both the monazite and youngest zircon yield a range of apparent ages (∼2.51-2.47 Ga), consistent with crystallization during an extended period of metamorphism. Some zircon also preserves an isotopic record of earlier events, placing an upper limit of a...[Show more]
