Oblique dilation, melt transfer, and gneiss dome emplacement

McFadden, R.R; Teyssier, C; Siddoway, Christine Smith; Whitney, Donna; Fanning, Christopher


The upward transfer of partially molten crust and the formation of gneiss domes and metamorphic core complexes commonly take place by localization of normal or oblique extension in the middle and upper crust. In Marie Byrd Land, Antarctica, a transition from wrench to oblique extension occurred during oblique plate divergence along the East Gondwana margin and intracontinental crustal extension associated with the West Antarctic Rift System in mid-Cretaceous time. Migmatites in the Fosdick dome...[Show more]
