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


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]
