Barrovian metamorphism linked to crustal thickening in the southeast Coast Plutonic Complex of British Columbia and Washington is proposed in this paper to be the product of magmatic loading. Relevant observations and arguments are the following. (1) Isotopic ages coupled with structural and fabric relations document that throughout the region Barrovian metamorphism and plutonism are broadly coeval. (2) Baric patterns in country rock indicate steep-sided crustal loads originating within the… CONTINUE READING
