Exhumation as fast as subduction?

Rubatto, Daniela; Hermann, Joerg


We produced a pressure-temperature-time path in order to determine the exhumation rate of the deepest subducted Alpine rocks. In situ dating of peak-metamorphic titanite in an eclogite facies calc-silicate rock indicates that subduction to pressures of ~3.5 GPa was reached at 35.1 ± 0.9 Ma. Titanite formed during two decompression stages, at 1 ± 0.15 GPa and ~0.4-0.5 GPa, and yielded ages of 32.9 ± 0.9 Ma and 31.8 ± 0.5 Ma, respectively. Combining the age data and making assumptions about the...[Show more]
