Large-scale tectonic reconstructions depend on linked and reliable geochronology and palaeomagnetic data.
Our geochronology has identified major early Ordovician magmatism within the Slishwood Division.
The results of integrated field mapping and geochronology provide evidence for three major tectonothermal events.
The assignment of a particular suite of granites to one of these tectonic settings requires detailed knowledge of its structural setting, geochronology and chemistry.
In view of the new geochronology , the Finnmarkian Orogeny cannot have played any part in the deformation of the Hellefjord Schist.
Another geochronologist on the team has dated two volcanic layers above the unconformity, and they consistently date to just over 2.8 billion years.
Our new geochronologic data reported here both complement and support prior geochronological work on the metamorphic history of the Sudetic high-grade terranes.
The new U-Pb analyses on the felsic porphyroids represent the first geochronological demonstration that a magmatic event occurred during the Mid-Ordovician in the Lower Domain of the Peloritan Mountains.
Recently, he published the results of a comparison between radiocarbon dating and a second technique, known as optical dating, carried out by a geochronologist .
Significant interest in a complete record of all terrestrial mafic magmatism exists in Canada and, indeed, Canadian geochronologists have been leading efforts to date such rocks.
