Timing of Grenville-age vs. Pan-African medium- to high grade metamorphism in western Dronning Maud Land (East Antarctica) and significance for correlations in Rodinia and Gondwana

Jacobs, Jeffrey Bruce; Fanning, Christopher; Bauer, Wolfgang

Description

Heimefrontfjella in western Dronning Maud Land, East Antarctica, is part of the c. 1.1 Ga Namaqua-Natal-Maud Belt. It is situated at an important location, both for Rodinia reconstructions and at the western orogenic front of the Late Neoproterozoic/Early Palaeozoic East African/Antarctic Orogen. Six basement samples help to precisely date the Grenville-age metamorphism between c. 1090 and 1060 Ma. These dates indicate that palaeomagnetic data from the Coats Land Block to the south of the Maud...[Show more]
