Tectonic development of the Samail ophiolite: High‐precision U‐Pb zircon geochronology and Sm‐Nd isotopic constraints on crustal growth and emplacement
New high‐precision single grain U‐Pb zircon geochronology and whole rock Nd isotopic data provide insight into the magmatic and tectonic development of the Samail ophiolite. The analyzed rocks can be
Rapid crustal accretion and magma assimilation in the Oman-U.A.E. ophiolite: High precision U-Pb zircon geochronology of the gabbroic crust
[1] New high-precision U/Pb zircon geochronology from the Oman-United Arab Emirates (U.A.E.) ophiolite provides insight into the timing and duration of magmatism and the tectonic setting during
Time scales of pluton construction at differing crustal levels: Examples from the Mount Stuart and Tenpeak intrusions, North Cascades, Washington
Deciphering the magmatic history of continental magmatic arcs, in general, and the growth history of individual intrusions, in particular, is key to understanding the complex history of magma
Magma addition and flux calculations of incrementally constructed magma chambers in continental margin arcs: Combined field, geochronologic, and thermal modeling studies
Incrementally constructed magma systems have been recognized from studies of the resulting plutons for more than three decades. However, magma addition rates, fluxes, growth durations, sizes of
Construction of mid-crustal sheeted plutons: Examples from the North Cascades, Washington
Large parts of many orogenic belts consist of highly elongate plutons constructed by the injection of multiple sheets of magma. We describe in detail two such intrusions, the deep (∼20–25 km),
Protolith age of the Swakane Gneiss, North Cascades, Washington: Evidence of rapid underthrusting of sediments beneath an arc
The metamorphic core of the North Cascades largely comprises island arc and oceanic terranes juxtaposed prior to circa 96 Ma magmatism. However, the tectonic affinity of the structurally deepest
