(U-Th)/(He-Pb) Double dating of detrital zircons

Reiners, Peter; Campbell, Ian; Nicolescu, Stefan; Allen, Charlotte M; Hourigan, J.; Garver, J.; Mattinson, J; Cowan, D.

Description

Geochronology and thermochronology on detrital material provides unique constraints on sedimentary provenance, depositional ages, and orogenic evolution of source terrains. In this paper we describe a method and case-studies of measurement of both U/Pb and (U-Th)/He ages on single crystals of zircon that improves the robustness of constraints in each of these areas by establishing both formation and cooling ages of single detrital grains. Typically these ages correspond to crystallization and...[Show more]
