Hemming,1 '2 G.N. Hanson,1 andS.M. McLennan1 Abstract A Sm-Nd survey of Precambrian granitic and metasedi- mentary rocks collected from several geophysically defined blocks in central Minnesota confirms the presence of some fun­Cited by: 3.

They were not derived by melting of local metasedimentary rocks as suggested by previous workers, but by melting of a more juvenile source at depth. Post-orogenic granites have higher ε Nd (T) (~ +) than the syn-orogenic granitoids, indicating their derivation from a deeper crustal level where juvenile crust may by: Though crustal rocks show a wide range in Re and Os concentrations and Os isotopic composition, the data for SD 75 lie well within the field seen for a variety of crustal rocks (e.g., Koide et al., ; Esser and Turekian, ; Ravizza, ; Esperança et al., ; Saal et al., ; Widom et al., ).

Lacking direct samples of the. In geology, metasedimentary rock is a type of metamorphic a rock was first formed through the deposition and solidification ofthe rock was buried underneath subsequent rock and was subjected to high pressures and temperatures, causing the rock to overall composition of a metasedimentary rock can be used to identify the original sedimentary rock, even.

Geochimica et Cosmochimica Acta, 59, Author: Shaik A. Rashid, Shamshad Ahmad, Naqeebul Islam, Javid A. Ganai. The metamorphic belt in central Jiangxi, located in the compound terrain within the Cathaysia, Yangtze Block and Caledonian fold zone of South China, is composed dominantly of meta-argillo-are-naceous rocks, with minor amphibolite.

These rocks underwent amphibolite-facies metamorphism. The meta-argillo-arenaceous rocks show large variations in major element Cited by: 6.

This study examines the original nature, tectonic setting, and evolution of Paleoproterozoic metasedimentary rocks of the North Liaohe and Laoling groups of the northern segment of the Jiao–Liao–Ji Belt, in the northeastern margin of the Eastern Block of the North China Craton, using new petrological, whole-rock geochemical, geochronological, and Lu–Hf isotope by: Sulfur on the Early Earth.

Sulfur on the early Earth has been studied, because it gives insight into the oxidation state of the early atmosphere ocean system (Canfield and Raiswell, ). The occurrence of evaporitic sulfate from the Ga as in the Warrawoona Group of Western Australia suggests that sulfate must have been present in.

the other two plutons. The Nd model ages of the basement rocks (~Ga) are slightly older than those of the plutons (~Ga). The initial Sr and Nd isotopic ratios of the plutons can be modeled by the mixing between the mid-oceanic ridge basalt-like depleted mantle component and the crustal component represented by basement rocks, which is.

These rocks form the basement on which the Moine Supergroup and Torridonian sediments were deposited The Moine Supergroup consists of a thick and extensive sequence of Neoproterozoic siliciclastic metasedimentary rocks, dominated by psammites with. Abstract Some graphite contained in the billion-year-old metasedimentary rocks of the Isua Supracrustal Belt, Western Greenland, is depleted in 13 C and has been interpreted as evidence for early life.

The isotopic data from the Jurassic-Early Cretaceous plutonic suite do not reflect the presence of this boundary, suggesting that the isotopic systematics of this plutonic suite may not have been controlled by the same variations in crustal and/or mantle lithospheric structure at depth.}, doi = {/()CO;2.

The Castelo Branco granitic pluton is located within the Central Iberian Zone (CIZ), the innermost zone of the Iberian Variscan Belt.

This pluton is exposed over an area of km 2, with a mean diameter of 19 km, and consists of five late-tectonic Variscan granitic bodies, intruding the schist-greywacke complex (CXG) (Fig. 1).In the NE border, it contacts with a medium-grained biotite Author: Antunes Imhr.

Thin (3–20 m), picritic to noritic sills are found in the Proterozoic metasedimentary footwall rocks of the Duluth Complex, Minnesota. The sills were emplaced prior to the major intrusions that comprise the Duluth Complex, and underwent contact metamorphism along with the country rocks.

Oxygen, hydrogen, and sulfur isotopic compositions of the sills indicate a varied history of isotopic. Evidence for biogenic graphite in early Archaean Isua metasedimentary rocks Yoko Ohtomo1, Takeshi Kakegawa1, Akizumi Ishida1, Toshiro Nagase1 and Minik T.

Mineral and bulk rock compositions were monitored across a regional metamorphic gradient from ≈– °C to migmatite grade (≈– °C) at ≈– GPa, where pervasive up-temperature fluid flow during metamorphism has been Cited by: Quick NavTop About Metasedimentary rock Classification Sub-divisions Internet Links Mineral and/or Locality is an outreach project of the Hudson Institute of Mineralogy.

Metasedimentary and metavolcanic rocks are present in three successions ranging in age from Archean (about 2, Ma) to Early Proterozoic (about 2, Ma). These three successions include, from oldest, the Overland Creek Gneiss, the Phantom Lake Metamorphic Suite, and the Snowy Pass Supergroup.
