Large scale structure of the eclogite-blueschist of New Caledonia

Rawling, Timothy J; Lister, Gordon


This paper considers the large-scale geometry of the northern part of the eclogite-blueschist belt of New Caledonia, based largely on classical-style structural analysis, but in consideration of modern concepts regarding crustal extension, exhumation of high-pressure rocks and uplift. Shear zones played an important role in the evolution of the region. Early shear zones and high pressure metamorphism appear to be associated with overthrusting of an ultramafic sheet. Middle-stage shear zones are...[Show more]
