U-Pb zircon geochronology of plutonism in the northern Peninsular Ranges batholith, southern California: Implications for the Late Cretaceous tectonic evolution of southern California

Premo, Wayne; Morton, Douglas M.; Wooden, Joseph L.; Fanning, Christopher


Utilizing both sensitive high-resolution ion microprobe (SHRIMP) and conventional isotope dilution-thermal ionization mass spectrometry (ID-TIMS) methods, crystallization and/or emplacement ages have been obtained for a suite of Cretaceous intermediate-composition plutonic samples collected along a roughly E-W-trending traverse through the northern Peninsular Ranges batholith. Previously noted petrologic, mineralogic, and textural differences delineated four major zonations from west to east...[Show more]
