Over the past 25 years, there has been a growing appreciation of the role that tectonic processes play in exhuming metamorphic rocks. This trend began with the discovery of highly attenuated crustal sections in the Basin and Range province and the recognition that attenuation was caused by regional-scale horizontal exten­ sion, as manifested by normal faulting. This discovery caused many geoscientists to rethink the role that horizontal exten­ sion or, as it is more commonly called, tectonic… CONTINUE READING
