Adjacent terranes with ca. 2715 and 2650 Ma high-pressure metamorphic assemblages in the Nuuk region of the North Atlantic Craton, southern West Greenland: Complexities of Neoarchaean collisional orogeny

Nutman, Allen; Friend, Clark R L


In the gneiss complex of the Nuuk region of the North Atlantic Craton in southern West Greenland, terrane juxtaposition was followed by Neoarchaean folding under amphibolite facies conditions, with widespread low-pressure recrystallisation (5 kbar and 550-700 °C). The complex metamorphic overprinting requires that the P-T history related to actual terrane assembly has to be extracted from very small relicts of older metamorphic assemblages combined with the U/Pb dating, petrology and...[Show more]
