U-Pb SHRIMP ages of detrital granulite-facies rutiles: further constraints on provenance of Jurassic sandstones on the Norwegian margin

Meinhold, Guido; Morton, Andrew; Fanning, Christopher; Whitham, A G


Electron microprobe analyses of 128 detrital rutile grains from two Jurassic sandstone samples (Hettangian and Bajocian-Bathonian in age) from hydrocarbon exploration wells on the Norwegian margin confirm that more than 85 % of the rutiles were derived from metapelitic rocks. Zr-in-rutile geothermometry confirms that about 83 % of the rutile was formed under high-grade metamorphism (>750 C). Sixty-two rutile grains, including 60 of the identified high-temperature rutile population, were also...[Show more]
