We analyze zircon and rutile U-Pb ages and trace elements using LA-ICP-MS and SIMS of eclogites from the North Qaidam ultra-high-pressure metamorphic belt in NW China. Zr-in-rutile and Ti-in-zircon thermometries give consistent peak metamorphic temperatures for two fresh eclogite samples. Zircon and rutile U-Pb dating from the Yuka eclogite yielded ages of 430.2±3.7Ma and 407±16Ma respectively. Zircons from North Dulan eclogite record two distinct eclogite-facies metamorphic events at 446.6±4.1...[Show more]
