A series of 2D petrological–thermomechanical numerical experiments was conducted to: (i) characterize the variability of exhumation mechanisms of ultrahigh pressure metamorphic (UHPM) rocks during collision of spontaneously moving plates and (ii) study the possible geodynamic effects of melting at ultrahigh pressure conditions for the exhumation of high-temperature–ultrahigh pressure metamorphic (HT–UHPM) rocks. To this end, the models include fluidand melt-induced weakening of rocks. Five… CONTINUE READING
