The timing of partial melting, Barrovian metamorphism and granite intrusion in the Naxos metamorphic core complex, Cyclades, Aegean Sea, Greece

Keay, S; Lister, Gordon; Buick, Ian


The relationship between partial melting and granite intrusion in a classic Barrovian metamorphic terrane has been assessed. Thirteen samples were dated by SHRIMP U-Pb zircon geochronology from the island of Naxos, Greece, one of the Aegean metamorphic core complexes. The effect of partial melting during peak Barrovian metamorphism on Naxos is recorded by fine (<30 μm) zircon overgrowths surrounding older cores in seven of nine samples of migmatite analyzed. The ages of these overgrowths...[Show more]
