Setting of the ∼2560 Ma Qôrqut Granite Complex in the Archean crustal evolution of Southern West Greenland

Nutman, Allen; Friend, Clark; Hiess, Joe

Description

The Archean gneiss complex of West Greenland contains packages of unrelated rocks created during relatively short periods of time in arc-like magmatic environments, and having similarities to rocks formed at Phanerozoic convergent plate boundaries. The terranes of new Archean crust were amalgamated by collisional orogeny and then partitioned by post-assembly tectonic processes. Having summarized the origin of West Greenland Archean crust in arc-like environments, this paper then focuses on new...[Show more]
