Geochronology and tectonic significance of A-type granite from Misho, NW Iran: Implications for the detachment of Cimmeria from Gondwana and the opening of Neo-Tethys
Jamei, Susan; Ghorbani, Mansour; Jafari, Amin; Williams, Ian; Moayyed, Mohsen
The Cimmerian Terrane, part of which forms the Central Iranian Plateau, is one of several continental fragments produced during the early- to mid-Palaeozoic breakup of the northern margin of Gondwana.

A small ((similar to)30 km(2)) body of subalkaline granite intruding Precambrian sedimentary rocks of the Kahar...[Show more]
