Insights into crust formation and recycling in North Africa from combined U-Pb, Lu-Hf and O isotope data of detrital zircons from Devonian sandstone of southern Libya

Meinhold, Guido; Morton, Andrew; Fanning, Christopher; Howard, James P.; Phillips, Richard J.; Strogen, Dominic; Whitham, A G


Combined U-Pb, Lu-Hf and O isotope data of detrital zircons from the Devonian sandstone of southern Libya provide important new boundary parameters for reconstruction of palaeosource areas and sediment transport and may lead to novel approaches to test current plate tectonic models, with important implications for our understanding of the evolution of northern Gondwana (in present-day coordinates) during the Palaeozoic. Detrital zircon U-Pb ages from Devonian sandstone of the eastern margin of...[Show more]
