  • The isotopic ages of material exposed close to the Alpine fault in the Southern Alps, New Zealand, vary in a consistent fashion along the orogen. For the K-Ar system, muscovite and biotite ages display two distinct spatial trends that meet in the area of Fox Glacier, where a strong relationship is observed between K-Ar age and altitude. Excess argon is present in samples between Mount Kinnaird and Haast Pass in the southwest of the Southern Alps, giving unrealistically old, inconsistent K-Ar… CONTINUE READING
