A geochronological traverse across the Barrovian metamorphic series, Scotland, shows 40Ar/ 39Ar apparent age spectra that reflect the influence of progressive metamorphism during the Grampian orogenic episode. The lowest-grade units of the Barrovian metamorphic series retain pre-Grampian detrital ages as components of their white mica 40Ar/ 39Ar apparent age spectra. These relict ages are progressively obliterated in the direction of increasing metamorphic grade, with a Grampian-age 40Ar/ 39Ar...[Show more]
