Ages and origins of rocks of the Killingworth Dome, south-central Connecticut: implications for the tectonic evolution of southern New England
The Killingworth dome of south-central Connecticut occurs at the southern end of the Bronson Hill belt. It is composed of tonalitic and trondhjemitic orthogneisses (Killingworth complex) and bimodal metavolcanic rocks (Middletown complex) that display calc-alkaline affinities. Orthogneisses of the Killingworth complex (Boulder Lake gneiss, 456 ± 6 Ma; Pond Meadow gneiss, ∼460 Ma) were emplaced at about the same time as eruption and deposition of volcanic-sedimentary rocks of the Middletown...[Show more]
