  • Distribution of paleotemperatures has been studied in Paleozoic rocks of the Variscan fold and thrust belt of the NW Cantabrian Zone (Spain) by a combined application of illite crystallinity (IC) and conodont color alteration index (CAI). Results show that the diagenetic‐metamorphic grade increases with the increase in rock age, as marked by decreasing IC values and increasing CAI values. Moreover, the CAI isogrades roughly reflect the structural traits of the area, indicating that maximum… CONTINUE READING
