Tectonic sequence diagrams and the structural evolution of schists and gneisses in multiply deformed terranes

Forster, Margaret; Lister, Gordon


The current practice of numbering deformation phases (D1/... Dn) in a multiple deformed terrane obscures the link between data and inference, and can lead to erroneous interpretations. Routine production of tectonic sequence diagrams (TSDs) allows a method whereby all deformation and metamorphic mineral growth events, their overprinting and duration (based on relative timing) are systematically recorded. Different hypotheses as to correlation of TSDs across a region can then be assessed...[Show more]
