The nature and origin of the Barrovian metamorphism, Scotland: Diffusion length scales in garnet and inferred thermal time scales

Viete, Daniel; Hermann, Joerg; Lister, Gordon; Stenhouse, Iona


In this paper we examine the length scales of major element diffusion in garnet during the Barrovian metamorphism. The role of diffusion in the flattening of Mn zoning profiles in garnet with increasing metamorphic grade across the Barrovian metamorphic series is ambiguous. However, the loss of distinct Mn-defined secondary compositional zoning in Barrovian garnets with increasing metamorphic grade and preservation of geochemical textures around Mn-free inclusions within high-grade Barrovian...[Show more]
