Lithospheric-scale extension during Grampian orogenesis in Scotland

Viete, Daniel; Richards, Simon; Lister, Gordon; Oliver, Grahame J.H.; Banks, Graham J


This contribution presents a new model for the Grampian-age tectonothermal development of the Buchan Block and Barrovian-type regions to its west, in the Grampian Terrane, Scotland. The model has drawn on evidence gathered from field mapping, microstructural analysis, metamorphic petrology and mafic magma geochemistry to propose that emplacement of the Grampian gabbros and regional metamorphic heating associated with production of Barrovian- and Buchan-type units occurred during syn-orogenic...[Show more]
