Although water is ubiquitous in the continental crust, its effect on geochronometers through mineral reequilibration is rarely taken into account. Herein, we present 40Ar/39Ar analyses on muscovite and U-Pb isotopic data on zircon and monazite from a Variscan syn-tectonic granite from western France. Both the K-Ar in the muscovite and U-Pb in the monazite isotopic systems were hydrothermally reset, whereas the U-Pb radiogenic system in most of the zircons was unaffected and dates the granite...[Show more]
